A week till we leave!
Six days, actually, as it's almost midnight as I'm typing this.
Four days to finish getting the house in order and tie up any loose ends we can't do over the internet.
We're bringing one cat, had to euthanize one (cancer) and are leaving the last one with our new tenants.
We haven't been studying the language. Bad, bad, bad. Oh well. I'm sure we'll adapt.
We're not entirely sure what we're getting into. We try to do our research, but it's never quite enough.
One thing I have learned is that the Vietnamese do not ravenously consume dogs. Dogs are a niche cuisine, and there are a lot of ethnic niches in Vietnamese culture. So people can relax a bit and stop trying to shock me with that. I will assume, then, that they are not big on eating cats, either.
Their flagrant disregard for environmental issues is probably true, though.
