The tuk-tuk drove us to catch our night buses around 1 am. There were six of us leaving. Four were going south, and two were going north. The system was really funny— the bus driver would call the tuk-tuk driver to let him know it was close, and then the tuk-tuk driver would take us … More 4/16/18: Making Friends On The Street
I woke up at 5:30, planning to go for a run. But it was thunder storming, so I slept in until 7 am instead.

I made breakfast at my hostel with my mango, muesli, and soy milk. One of the hostel staff members saw me with my soy milk and told me to stop drinking it because it’s bad for me. I told him I disagreed, and we got in a bit of an argument. He pulled up all … More 3/14/18: Final Night In Vietnam
I woke up early to go to the Cu Chi Tunnels, the network of tunnels used by the Viet Cong (the Northern Vietnamese guerrilla group) during the Vietnam War. The tour bus left around 8:30 am.
