When I arrived in Thailand last October, I immediately became the token American girl of my TEFL course. Simultaneously trying to master British English and Thai was amusing, but I figured that surely it was a fluke 98% of my course were from every other English-speaking country besides my own. And so begun the never-ending search for the Americans’€¦
While I have had sporadic run-ins with American teachers and travelers in Southeast Asia, they make up an overwhelming minority. Traveling in this part of the world, it’s possible to go weeks without seeing another of my kind.
I can only help but wonder’€¦. where are all of the Americans?
