I’m just a little bit excited about an upcoming trip to my old home, Saigon. Though it will be for a fleeting few days, I can’t wait to:
+ catch up with friends remaining in Saigon
+ visit my old local coffee shop, home-away-from home and adopted Vietnamese family, who have since expanded with no less than three new babies in the past twelve months(!)
+ eat, eat and eat some more at a combination of old favourites and new finds
+ drink copious amounts of cafe sua da
+ barhop and try not to drink copious amounts of cocktails
+ foot massage, body massage, manicure, pedicure, hairwash/massage/blowdry, foot scraping and maybe even fish foot massage (i.e. have fish eat dead skin from my feet…if I can bear it)
+ shop. Alot.
+ walk, explore, watch, meet, talk, dream and be inspired by the colour, smells, light, sounds and energy of the city.
Ok, now I’m officially excited!
