If you were expecting daily blog posts from Vietnam like I usually do for my trips, I’m sorry to disappoint. This trip I decided I’d film vlogs instead, and now my arms are muscly from holding up cameras all month.
I stopped writing for a while. Half because I got busy, half because, I don’t know. I stopped feeling like a writer.
I’m in an airport as I write this, but won’t be anymore when you read it. I’m on my way to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam, where I will rendezvous with my mom, my sister Amy, and my brother Marvin. My flights were booked later and as a result, I’m travelling separately from them.
Told you these would be all out of order.
I went to the Botanical Garden on Sunday, which I soon realized after arriving was a mistake because the line to get in was insanely long and by the time I reached the front, the garden would’ve closed.
I went back to that bagel place from Day 1. This time I came later, around lunchtime, and while they were still busy, there wasn’t a line and I was seated right away.
Day 4 started, as is becoming a pattern, with food. I went to a cute patisserie called Maison Christian Faure and got their “Lunch Royal” which included a coffee or tea, the plat du jour, and a pastry. It was delicious, although a few of my table neighbours went for the salmon and I kind of want to go back to try it because it looked amazing.
I think we all know by now that I kind of love art museums. I lost count of how many I went to in Paris and my friend practically had to drag me out of one in Chester when, after two hours, I’d only seen the first two of five floors.
I set off about an hour later than I did on day one, due to yesterday’s post going up kind of…late? Early? Both?
Anyway, I didn’t have breakfast and reached Centre Ville around lunchtime, so I went to the second of three places I knew I wanted to eat at. I went to the bagel place on Day 1 and this day I went to a vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Old Town called Lov.
