Well, back home safe and sound. I still need to unpack. Looks like all of my souvenirs made it alright. My prized souvenir is my non la (conical leaf hat). I think it is neat and embodies Vietnamese culture. I will definitely wear it if I’m out gardening. I think it’s my favorite dollar ever spent! I’ve been sleeping a lot since I’ve been back. I’m trying to get adjusted to the time change.
It has been an amazing adventure. I’ve loved seeing new things and making new friends. One day, I hope to return to see even more new things and re-experience the culture all over again. I will always cherish the memories my class made together. I’m glad to have had this amazing opportunity.
