It’s Friday night in Hanoi. How shall I spend my evening amongst 8 million other people. How about go to a bar ! And that is what I did tonight. I went to a local bar to do some journaling and reflect on my second week in Hanoi. There is a local place just up the road that opened this week. Happy Juice! As I sat there enjoying my Watermelon and Mango Smoothie I notice they had phrases painted on the walls. “A journey or a thousand miles begins with a single step“ very fitting as I seat 7,326 miles from home. “What is right is not always popular and ………. “Don’t wait for the perfect moment take the moment and make it perfect” …....”Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it”…. the pillows on the sofa even made a very accurate statement.
A perfect place to spend the evening reflecting on what has been a very effective week focused on understanding the Vietnam healthcare system and how to support the fight on HIV and TB the 2 leading causes of infectious disease deaths. That’s it for now…..by the way the watermelon/mango smoothie was very refreshing. I will be returning to Happy Juice… I also received a couple of request for a photo of me on my motorbike…..
So long for now…..have a great weekend.
