It’s always nice to get a small reminder of my unique place of origin.
I bought these shoes from my favorite shoemaker & didn’t notice the
kangaroos on the sole until after I left the shop.
Today, site my students asked me if I’d play cÃ³ tá»· phÃº (billionaire chess) with them, buy then waved what looked like Monopoly title cards at me. Curious, I inspected these to discover very well known Saigon street names. Clearly this is Vietnam’s home-grown version of Monopoly. Check out the policewoman sending you to jail! Don’t see too many of them on the streets, even though it would be quite a successful revenue generator.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to play.
Next stop, a bookstore, to find me a box.
