It’s almost midnight, November 22, 2011. I’m sitting in southern New Jersey (USA) – it’s cold and raining heavily.
The day after tomorrow is Thanksgiving and tomorrow I’m planning to chop up lots of fruit and soak them in Apricot Brandy to begin the turkey stuffing. I’m certain it will be a wonderful meal together with my two sisters and their families whom I haven’t seen in almost a year. (OK – So now you’re wondering – Did I click the wrong Google search? Or is there a crazy guy in South Jersey blogging about where to eat in Saigon? NO – YOU’RE OK – so far.)
Even here in the Pinelands of New Jersey, all I can think about tonight is Vietnam! I miss my partner, Hai. And I miss jumping on the motorbike each day and exploring Saigon with him – scouting out the best places to eat in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the hidden little allies with Saigon’s best street food eating adventures, and enjoying together our favorite Vietnam dishes and Saigon cafes. But I’m only away from Vietnam for a few weeks. I’ll be back soon to relax at one of my favorite Saigon coffee shops and enjoy some early morning or late night Pho – Saigon style with Hai. And to launch our Blog – Eating Saigon!
