Attention professors and others: Go on a free luxury Thailand to South Africa cruise (just give a few lectures on your specialty)

    Posted by Adam Crouch

My mother is currently working on Princess cruise ships, teaching classes to passengers onboard. She has quite a bit of free time, and so she gets to enjoy all of the luxury amenities and gets to hang out in port just like a passenger. She's having the time of her life, and absolutely loves it.

Anyway, she passed this on to me. The company she works for urgently needs someone with expertise in "World Foreign Affairs, World Economics, Art Historians, Cultural Historians, General Historians, and/or Ancient Historians" to give a few lectures on the Grand Princess for a 30-day cruise from Bangkok, Thailand to Cape Town, South Africa, from Nov 17 to Dec 17. It's unpaid, but you and a companion can go for FREE, and you only have to give a couple of lectures (not very many)

I'm not available those dates (and I don't know that a blog is sufficient proof of expertise... :P). So, since many of our readers are professors or others with high levels of expertise in these areas, I thought I'd pass it on to you guys.

If you have any questions, call the number at the bottom. Don't ask me, cause I have no clue.
