I finally landed safely in Vietnam right around midnight. I was warmly greeted by some familiar faces from my last trip in November 2006. They had flowers and warm smiles when I came out of the airport… it was truly humbling to know that they went out of their way to welcome me here.
The weather extremely hot here… it is supposedly one of the hottest seasons of the year. Even as I am typing this in the room, I am slowly feeling the sweat drops falling from my forehead.
I will be teaching in about 7 hours – we are starting at 8AM.
Even though my time here is not that long, the intensity of the teaching schedule will be hard. I think my dream came true (maybe the Vietnamese students’ nightmare)… I will be talking for 8+ hours 🙂
