We like the West Lake but hotel life stinks! The comforts of home are NOT here. The laundry situatuon is HORRIBLE. The pint sized washer dryer take FOREVER to completely dry clothes. But oh well we manage.
We had the Duckers over for a bit yesterday evening, went down and ate in the the restaurant. Sophie is now clinging to Tricia and wants nothing to do with me, which I understand. Look at me :-) It is hard though as Tricia is taking a brunt of the holding etc. The grieving is very obvious. Sophie loves Pho. We gave it to her last night and you would have thought we hung the moon in Ha Noi. We will venture out today and get some "fresh" air. Those who have been here, know that is a total joke. Air polution here is out of control. The haze and smog are 100x worse than Saigon. We will wait to see where we all decide, maybe to visit Uncle Ho, or the Ha Noi Hilton. So we are learning everyday from our little one. We will update this evening again.
