I've had a wonderful week spent with new friends here in Hoi An. Woman's Day was a true day of women bonding. My friendship with Ha and Thuey strengthened and I met a new friend, Jane.
Ha and Thuey had a day off from work at the hotel and we planned a trip into Da Nang to catch a movie and shop at the Big C. It's an odd, but very refreshing feeling that going into Da-Nang is a 'big deal' by bus might I add. Something so simple can mean so much. A true sign of a life of simplicity. We had a great time shopping for the simplest things like shampoo and conditioner.
It's wonderful having native Vietnamese friends. Even though their English is quite well, things still get lost in translation. So here came Jane, my english friend. She is so lovely and in a weird way I feel like I've known her my whole life. We get on very well and have enjoyed spending time together.
So my social life is starting to take off here! I've got 3 friends and ones going to leave in a few days. 3 friends are better than none! Glad to know I can still make friends on the other side of the world.
