That Siterhood Thing

Just finished dinner with the ladies of the house. It’s one of those very special times when you are so happy to have come to a far-off corner of the world all by yourself. There were four of us. Only one could speak both Vietnamese and English, but it didn’t matter. We sat around the table in our jammies, talked, laughed, and ate. I tried out a few new words in Vietnamese while they patiently corrected and approved of my efforts. What a lovely way to end the work week.

Good night – chuc ngo ngon
