I have a cough. I'm tired. I'm listless. I think I'll skip the walk and swim today.
Screw it. Soon I won't have this beach anymore. Need to make use of it NOW.
I'm not the only one who went for a dip.
Most Vietnamese can not swim. So they stay close to the shore or to another person ;-)
I'm wide awake, high-spirited and my cough seems to be gone. Is a beach walk & swim all it takes to turn a horrible morning into a glorious one? Is it the secret remedy that turns every day into a glorious one?
The consequences of that thought are mind-boggling. Even more reasons to leave Vancouver !
Grandma doesn't sound as chipper as yesterday. A constant worry. But sitting in Vancouver holding her hand every day is not a good solution either.
Back to work or a nap? Both!
|YES, all you poor schmucks in the lands of the red pre-cooked Safeway prawns. These are REAL prawns, LOL|
Quang's wife keeps smiling at me and keeps taking pictures of me. But in a nice way.
And I do it again. The return to my personal Gulag is in sight and to compensate for that I book a flight. But CAD$ 662 for a March return flight Vancouver Saigon is REALLY a good deal ! Vietnam Airlines now flies to Vancouver !
Just for fun, I check out an all inclusive single person 2-week trip to Varadero in the same time period. The cheapest Air Transat package costs CAD$ 1930. LOL, Canadians REALLY get punished. Only 2 weeks of vacation per year and then they have to pay such OUTRAGEOUS prices for MEDIOCRE holidays. Working your ass off in a country that you believe is the greatest but which rips you off every chance it gets. A fate worth than death!
But I have a ticket to Vietnam. I'll sleep better now, LOL.
