Back to Reality…

Wednesday, January 4th, 2006


January 4th, 9 in the morning, and here I am sipping coffee at school, exchanging customary greetings with my Japanese colleagues. 72 hours ago I was on a scooter downtown Ho Chi Minh amidst various rushing, honking two-wheeled vehicles. When I got here my car had a 30 cm layer of snow on it, reminding me how much I dislike winter. Ah, well… I’ll still be blogging about Vietnam for maybe a couple of weeks, while memories are still fresh in my mind. Classes start on the 11th, which means I also have to prepare for that, not to mention a big pile of laundry waiting for me in my apartment, which looks pretty much like a war zone right now… So it’s back to reality, hoping the memories of Vietnam will linger on for a while…
