The other day I went to the post office here in Long Xuyen and mailed out a batch of postcards and letters. It cost me a relatively small fortune and when I thought about it, I realized that I was sending stuff to four of the seven continents. I had never done that before.

I received the first call from my parents this morning and it was wonderful to hear their voices. We didn’t talk for long and there was a delay when we spoke, which was something that I’ve never really experienced. The weather continues to be nearly perfect here, by my American standards: cool in the morning and evening and warm in the afternoon, but not hot.

  1. As you are sitting in Vietnam sending out post cards, swatting at mosquitos and learning so much about that amazing culture, I am starting my last and potentially final semester for perhaps, well, ever! Scary, incredibly amazing and liberating! I am ready to be done but also a bit uncertain as I am not totaly sure what is in store for me come June, well other than all my friends getting married this summer…. dorks ;). I wish you health and happiness, and ENJOY the beautiful weather. much peace-se
