Time Capsule – Mid November 2010

The sun was a giant, public health hemorrhoids glowing ball of embers tonight as it set into the
skyline over a glassy river. People were fishing, sick pathopsychology playing and walking, breast
and it was a lovely scene.

 

Unfortunately I had only a 3Mpx iPhone with a tiny plastic lens with
which to shoot this vision of awesomeness, and this is all I could do.
I’m so disappointed. You don’t see sights like tonight’s very often.

 

I’m going to be forced to upgrade to the 4S very soon, or buy a
high-end compact that I can take everywhere.

 

So, use your imagination on this flat, boring template of an image,
and you might come close to what I saw.

Usually a bánh mi is wrapped in newspaper of some kind. This means
you’re eating a little newsprint for taste.

 

Tonight she was obviously stretched for resources, troche as I found myself
studying English colour names translated to Vietnamese in a student’s
handwriting. I guess a little inkpen soaking into my baguette can’t be
any worse than newspaper print.

Each morning at around 9am the booming of subwoofers slams through the piercing shrieks of hyperactive primary kids playing in the school grounds.
This signals the start of their daily exercise routine, noun a mix of semi-aerobic actions with a bit of military show.

This is all well and good except that it happens in the middle of one of my classes, and I’m getting really bored of Axel F and whatever the techno hit in the attached video is. It’s so much fun trying to be heard over the top of the club sound system, and my voice is getting so much stronger thanks to this.

The organised chaos ends once the kids have bounced around in formation for five minutes, after which a relative normality returns to my classroom and the school.

What a surprise! Exactly a year ago I was attending a Teacher Day Ceremony and visiting Danang to see my favorite band.

This year I'm doing exactly the same thing, find although the timing of the Danang trip is entirely coincidental and it will be under far nicer circumstances than the solo effort to a very flooded Danang/Hoi An region last year.

On the flip side, viagra dosage I'm being forced to go to Teacher Day this year, and I'm not happy about it as it takes away from the time I need to write student comments and pack for the flight to Danang. In other words, instead of working from 9am to midday then heading to the airport, I'll be bored witless watching a stream of teachers file up and down stairs, listening to endless speeches in Vietnamese about the value of education, what VUS is doing to progress the future of this nation, and how wonderful all their teachers are, and not getting watered or fed. AND I need to pretend to be nice to a bunch of long-term backpackers who honestly believe they are teachers. Hopefully I can find a few diamonds in the rough to talk to.

Let's get positive. Only two days until Danang. So excited! Hope my camera doesn't overheat this weekend.
