Well, I made it back from a short trip to Hanoi yesterday. I was there to visit both the Fulbrighters and the VYLA students who will attend SPEA at IUB for the MPA program (acronyms galore…). Horizon picked me up at the airport and I stayed at their dorm for the weekend. My lawyer, Ms. Thy, arranged to have her fellow Fulbrighters give me a more positive impression of Hanoi on this trip. I was quite happy actually especially with my personal tour guide… 🙂
Saturday night I got to try cha ca in Hanoi with the Fulbrighters and my friend, Jason Vu. This was the first time I tried cha ca and I was quite impressed. I got a new favorite dish now.
Since I was so busy, I forgot to take pictures. I will on my next trip to Hanoi.
