One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every day in Abidjan is an amazing day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to be an English teacher, so I can help you with your homework. I can also teach: hungarian and american cooking, american politics (or my own cynical read on american politics, whichever you prefer); development economics; cooking vietnamese food; wine; bluegrass, old time and other american folk music; irish folk music; classical music theory and harmony; feminism; woodworking (you supply the tools); bicycle maintenance; auto maintenance (you supply the car); guitar, mandolin, pennywhistle; flute; philosophy; various bits of world history (I majored in it after all, I'll probably remember a bit if you ask); and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting.
