Next week, Emily, Michael and I head to Hanoi, Vietnam for our end of January vacation. Over the course of that week, there are a million different things we would like to do such as eat pho and banh mis’, but I’m most excited for the historical aspect of our visit. A lot of Southeast Asian culture took place in Vietnam and getting to see all that in person will be absolutely amazing. For example, seeing how French architecture and Asian architecture come together as one. Hanoi also lays claim to be the birthplace of pho which is a staple Vietnamese and South Asian dish. We also plan to go to Le Van Huu eatery to eat and see where former US President Barack Obama and world renowned chef Anthony Bourdain once shared a meal together.
I think regardless of what we do in the end, the trip will be absolutely fantastic. It will be a great time in a new place, with awesome food and with great friends. What more could you ask for?
Have a great break y’all and see you in class!
