Happy Memorial Day in Vietnam

For me, Memorial Day Weekend is the kickoff of Summer back at home. The weather is finally nice, beach camps and Summer houses are opened, barbaques come out and the months of cold dreary Winter weather are easily forgotten. Memorial Day in Vietnam is just plain weird. It's not celebrated obviously, but we decided to have our own celebration. As many of you know, the weather is hotter here than it will ever get back home, we live on the beach so technically there is no "beach house" to open up, the only thing missing is our barbaque. We have been saying for months, "lets get a "barbie" as out kiwi friends like to call it. Well Memorial Day Weekend in Nam was the perfect excuse.

Dan, as amazing as he is, ventured into the markets found the "barbeque", coal, chicken, fish, veggies, and of course loads of beer. I topped it off with mom's famous potato salad, which I obviously didnt make as good as she does, but it hit the spot for everyone.  We might not be home celebrating, but we tried our best to celebrate here! Happy Memorial Day!!
