... sitting outside and talking to other people who live here all winter long, working in the ski resorts in the villages up the road. I want to do that! I spoke to Merlin (our host) and he told me that there are the 2 most expensive international boarding schools in the world just up the hill. He suggested I check out their website and get in contact with them about possible jobs here once I graduate from grad school because I would ...
