We are in the lounge at Ho Chi Minh City International Airport awaiting our flight to Hong Kong.
Its been quite the experience for us and probably the guides we met. I forgot to mention that while on our tour in Da Nang, our guide Tommy, sang to us in Vietnamese and asked if I would sing for he and the driver. So he pulls up the Bluetooth and guess what song comes on.. Hotel California by the Eagles. No joke- and I sang that song while driving over rice paddies in Central Vietnam. CLASSIC.
Daddy chimed in for the chorus, too. I had no idea I knew every word to that song. And having just STAYED in our own Hotel California in the mountains- it was even more bizarre and perfect.
Most signs say “Good Luck and See you Again” as you leave a city here. I like that. I also really like the kindness of this place- reflected in this arrow on the airport ground (photo below)- it says :” 3rd floor- waiting and well wishers gallery” ?✈️
If you don’t know who Ho Chi Minh was, I encourage you to look into his history and how he lived his life. Extraordinarily humble and never ending drive for change – wonderful qualities. The people here call him “Uncle Ho”.
We will update if possible from Hong Kong – we have a short connection time and, as most of you know, flying back into US airspace there are a few levels of checkpoints to go through.
Have a wonderful Monday! Much love- Jarry ❤️??✈️????
