Our guest bedroom is FINALLY being put to good use! The second round of house guests was sweet Hallie (the daughter of a dear friend) and her awesome boyfriend, Noah, from New York City. They began a two week tour of Vietnam duty in Hanoi and worked their way down to Ho Chi Minh City.
I enjoyed seeing them attack the city with gusto. Even a little stomach bug Hallie picked up on her last day did not slow them down. They still made it to the Cu Chi tunnels where they got a chance to shoot the AK-47.
They toured the Ben Thanh market, War Remnants museum, Reunification Palace, Saigon Kim’s for a few shampoo massages and found time to sub teaching English for me at the Duc Duc center for street children.
And no MREs for these two…they went gung ho on the local chop chop scene and tried everything from pho to sushi! Paul and I had the pleasure of taking them to our favorite Restaurant 13 on their last night.
This A-team arrived as a couple we had never met in person and departed as friends we look forward to staying in touch with! Godspeed and Saigon LOVE to both of you!
