Met a very cool kid who valets motorbikes across the street from my hotel. We talked for awhile and he taught me quite a bit of Vietnamese vocabulary because if a local knows you’re trying, then they are happy to teach you. That’s the kindness and curiosity that makes these people so beautiful.
Shot some pool, drank some coffee, jonesed for cigarettes.
The other night I was walking the streets and saw huge crowds of people gathered around cafes and restaurants that had televisions. I figured that many of the people didn’t have cable TV at home so from the unlit street they cheer and yell and it’s a soccer party all over town.
