Birthday Preparations

The weather wasn't good for me to start preparations for my birthday. It was raining and so cold, and the following pictures show you how dam wet and cold it was.

The weather wasn't good for me to start preparations for my birthday. It was raining and so cold, and the following pictures show you how dam wet and cold it was. I started my day at a beef noodle shop for breakfast and then we went down to the market right near there. Even though the rain hadn't stop since the night before, the market was still very busy. The normal noisy arguments about the price were happening and a big fight about something almost started.

It was a fun time shopping in this small market on a rainy day. The people seemed very friendly here and things weren't expensive compared to other markets. I don't think bargaining works here even though I tried hard. The last thing I bought there was some hot steamed corn for a snack before I left. The corn was so fresh and good.

I finished my shopping at about 11.30 by which time I was completely wet and cold. It's ok, I had a fun time wandering around and had bought everything I needed for my party.

Hi God Knows,

I am going to be traveling to Vietnam in 3 weeks. I will be traveling from the U.S.

Reading your blog has gotten me very excited about my trip.

How about a belated beef noodle bowl and a beer on me?
