Tonight we celebrated Martinmas with some Waldorf families in Dubai. We did a Lantern walk with the children and parents in Safa Park. It was beautiful. Everyone had made a wonderful effort and the lanterns were stunning.

" Tiny lanterns glowing bright.

In the darkness of the night,

Tiny lanterns light our way

Blessed be Saint Martin's day."

I'm Szilvia from Hungary. In 2008 I finished my studies at the Hungarian Waldorf Teacher Training Institution. Since then I have been living in the Netherlands. I was a teacher assistant at the Alfa-College.
Now, I am back to Hungary, but would like to work in the Waldorf world. I am searching for a job.
Today I saw a documentary about Dubai, and I like your country very much.

Please, let me know if you are interested in me. If you don't have any teacher job available, I would like to ask your assistant to find a family who need some help with babysitting and/or housework.

I thank you in advance for your help!

Have a nice day!

Sincerely yours,
Szilvia Orsós
