t does exist, along the old Cameron street highway. Several small towns lie next to the railroad tracks and you can watch frequent trains go by.
Rayne, as Ive mentioned several times before, is a good place to start looking.

Hey. I'll look all over - even in Lafayette itself. I'm coming this summer for an extended period to do some job hunting for the 2012 school year. I'll be in China teaching till July 2012.

Yes, I'll consider Rayne. I've actually stayed in a B&B there on my past two summer visits. I'm going to stay there again this summer when I'm there. The B&B is right on the BNSF mainline. If only I could move in there! Wait, I need to get a job first.

Shouldnt be a problem to get one in Lafayette. Cameron Street goes right into the city and traffic is pretty light heading away from Rayne. You could always use the interstate too and get there quickly, and pick up some great food on your way Its not a bad place to live and the people are down to earth. OUt there is mostly some farmland and a few little businesses. ITs pretty peaceful.

How is teaching in China? You liking it? I'd probably begin looking for jobs in the states when in the summer, you know maybe sign up w/ the LPSS, be in the list to sub until you can get a full time gig. Being a teacher, you'd know how it goes.

Yeah, I'm afraid I'll be eating too much of all that good food! I'll have to exercise some restraint. Or I guess, I could just exercise.

Teaching in China's fine. I'm not in a Chinese school, though. I'm working in a private school for foreign students.

As for finding a job, I've already got the wheels turning, though slowly. I'm trying to get in touch with key people, but LPSS' spam guard is very good. All my initial emails bounce back. So, either I have to fax or have a friend on the inside email my quarries so they can contact me. It's cumbersome.
