Chúc mừng năm mới - Happy New Year from Vietnam! or: Join the Joy Luck Club


I am sooo thrilled! I have arrived yesterday in Hanoi, Vietnam (like usually with a bag full of far too many books, *sigh*).

We went in the Old Quarter to a nice little lake in the middle of the city. There is currently a HUGE crowd in the streets because yesterday was the New lunar Year (Tet Festival), the major celebration in Vietnam. A beautiful red bridge crosses the lake to a tiny island with a beautiful temple. It is a tradition for Vietnamnese people to come here on New Year's day to pray for luck, good health etc.

This is the place where I released my first book in Vietnam.

I got back to the hotel, checked my emails and WHAM, my first journal entry by a very happy Vietnamnese person:

Fantastic

I had noticed that Vietnam had some activity from the 'Go Hunting' pages. Now I know who was responsible :-)

Well, only partly ... the weather is horrible (and it does not help that everybody tells us that normally it is warmer and doesn"t rain that much... but I have time to read *g*)
