Opening Day: Yankees vs. Viet Cong
In honor of baseball season starting tonight (at the moment: Yankees 5, Red Sox 1), I offer the following photo from the Ben Trahn Market in Saigon, which Patricia and I visited last Tuesday. Amid your Vietnam caps there was this. So much for Yankee Go Home. And yes, I was reminded of this.
Someone is Missing
That someone is me—from here. For the past two weeks Patricia and I have been traveling in Vietnam. I meant to post about the experience as it happened but events conspired so I'll be posting from the cool of Seattle rather than the humidity of Hanoi. I know. It's a little like mailing your exotic postcards once you get home, but I'll try to avoid the suggestion of a Seattle city postmark and Liberty Bell stamp. In the meantime here's some movie lit I picked up at the VinCom City Towers in Hanoi. That opening date is April 2, by the way, not February 4. We didn't see it. We actually saw something else that day. But more on that later.
