If you were on a bus the best thing to do would be to try to go to sleep for that part of the trip.

 

One thing is for sure, the first time the driver tried speeding, recklessly overtaking or reading messages on his phone while driving he'd have a bus load of passengers screaming at him.

Seasoned traveller. The link I posted for icniff below DID mention crazy bus drivers!

I love bus rides! I am on the local (1 Rmb surprisevs. taxi for 10 Rmb) weekly and long distance rides are my fav.

 

Shenzhen to Fuzhou .... front bed/seat with i-Pod & UE ('100%-noise-block') earplugs, battery charger and off we go.

 

I did a bus ride in Nepal last year, which was ..... interesting, 'cause in Nepal 'road' often suddenly turns into the river and after 100 or so meters became 'road' again.

You can also see valley some 150 -200 m below out of the seat's window.

I felt 'victorious' hehe by thinking of some poor sod, who's walking the mountain ....

 

I bus myself in February from Delhi to Shimla in Himachal Pradesh on the night ride, sleeping most of the trip.

 

My biggest miss was bus ride from Kasghar, Xinjiang to Taskhurgan over Khorakoram pass on the highest elevation of 5500 m (18k feet) and last stop in Gilgit, Pakistan ....'cause Pak's Bj Embassy wouldn't grant 30-days visa.

One Pajee in Camden told me, Pak could be very dangerous, 'cause of my blue eyes. It means sumtin' devilish .... in Baltistan's 'religion'.  He didn't say anything about bus ride&dangerous .....

I'll have another try with Pak.'s visa soon.

 

Dangerous? Don't you think, comet can also be pretty dangerous? I do! he he

India 'where'?

 

Nepal or Himachal Pradesh is very similar to these pics except there aren't any big rivers, but itinerar is equal.

My Internet is sucky, so I couldn't open Bing to translate titles below pics on 1st link. It must be some special place in India ... I think I saw it over the web, while I was 'dd-ing' Himachal before the trip last Feb.

I have some links on 'draft' folder ... I'll find out if I have same/similar pics there.

Pic 8 & 9 are in Himachal Pradesh. I knew, I saw the pics on the first link somewhere. Other pics are Mumbai route which I didn't check it out yet. That's in my future plan. India is vast, and I just did Himalaya from the other side of Nepal ....

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
