| it's been over two months since we arrived in vietnam and we're definitely settling in nicely. things that seemed crazy to us when we first arrived, like the traffic and tiny plastic chairs in restaurants, just aren't a big deal anymore.|
vernon and i had a kick ass weekend. saturday we bought groceries from our hood and chowed down on some street food. i had a bowl of bun rieu and some xoi with meat and mung beans. vernon purchased some goi coun. after lunch we headed out of d4 and into d1 for a really long walk. i like seeing the sites on foot.
sunday started out REALLY early. we ran in this race:
our warm up run consisted of getting to the starting line from our apartment. distance = 4 miles.
i completed the 4K in 19:01, while vernon ran it in 14:11 and won the whole thing! his prize was a round trip ticket to hong kong on cathay pacific! how cool is that? i'll have to buy my own ticket, but i'm excited to see hong kong!! remember on 90210 when jim and cindy walsh moved to hong kong? the post-race refreshments were really awesome. plenty of bottled water, ham and cheese sandwiches on baguettes, indian food, and kellogs cereal! free cereal is like totally my thing.
after the race we walked home and napped hardcore. then i went to work at the saigon times. running hard and working on sundays reminds me of swarthmore.
