Quick Update From Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on Christmas Eve not expecting as many Christmas decorations and a vibrant acknowledgement of the holiday as I’ve noticed. Most Vietnamese don’t view the holiday as anything more than a fun time of year. Tet is the most important holiday in Vietnam and in 2019 it falls on February 5th, which will be the Year Of The Pig. It’s Vietnam’s Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year. Of course being the holiday week there is a strong presence of foreigners, in particular Westerners in the city and I’m excited to be here and share some new discoveries with you.
