I moved into a new apartment last month and to get home I have to drive my motorbike through a long and windy road with green palm trees, fancy houses and food stalls to get to my small apartment that I am totally in love with. It is a nice drive (except at dusk when the bugs fly into your eyes and mouth) and when I get home I greeted warmly by 20 beat up, dirty and stinky soi dogs that I am also quiet fond of. One in particular, we named Lil' Pup (cause you know she is a puppy but she is pretty hard from living on the streets) wiggles her whole body and jumps up to check if my bags have any food as she licks my hands and waits to get a little rub down. She does really love and trust us now and it has worked out, I feed her and love her (I should clean her) and then I can go up to my clean apartment with no dog hair and still feel the puppy love! Look at this face, who could not love it!
My summer holiday is over and I have returned to a cooler Korea. Landing at the airport yesterday morning was tinged with a little sadness. I was really beginning to enjoy Vietnam when my time in this incredible country ran out. I spent ten days travelling around the south of Vietnam. I had quickly discovered that time was an issue that would restrain my adventure to only half the country, but nonetheless I filled my days and absorbed the vibe of Vietnam.
