One of my students grandmothers told me that I am going to have a wonderful future because I have small, lady-like, soft hands…sometimes I love Asia.
Sometimes I’m driving around Hanoi, noticing all the things I love about VietNam and I really wish my parents, sister and best friends could come see all this country has to offer.
I don’t know if it’s because this is the time of year I arrived or what, but the smell of the air tonight is distinctly VietNam.
When I went to Saigon a few weeks ago (more to come on this trip later), I went to this Pho restaurant. Bill Clinton visited Vietnam awhile ago and ate here, giving the restaurant their fantastic tagline.
The pho itself wasn’t the best I’ve ever had…you’d think that someone would have taken him to a proper street stall with GOOD pho, but I did get a kick out of the pictures of Bill with Vietnamese officials on the walls.
