hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Good Morning Vietnam

Good Morning Vietnam

I'm starting to learn that the first day in any country is disorenting, and overall, we failed terribly on every challenge.  

BUT! The one challenge we completed easily was the first one we did, and it was to order "Cha Ca" at a place called Cha Ca La Vong in Hanoi. It was grilled fish with all the fixings, but this set up was so cool. There was a hot plate on the table itself, so they cooked it in front of us. They cut a mass of rice noodles with scissors, and even though the waiter/chef didn't speak english, he was able to understand that I wanted him to show us how to put everything together (an important lesson I learned with hotpot).
