So as y`all know from my last blog post Emily, Michael and I were planning a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam. Well…. We`re back and had a wonderful time! However, our trip didn’t start off as smoothly as we would have liked. Since we are American, we all had to have a visa to enter the country. Emily was able to get hers on time, but Michael and I weren’t so lucky. Long story short, we had to stay in Osaka an extra day. With that extra day though we did get to go to the Nissen Noodle Museum which was super cool! After spending an extra day in Japan we did finally make it to Hanoi. We went all over the city to places such as the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and Literature Temple. The food was by far the best part of the trip! We ate so much Pho and Banh Mis` and it all tasted so unbelievably good.
Although our trip started off a little rough, it was still such a killer good time! Traveling with Michael and Emily is always fun and Vietnam was a great country to visit. The people were so nice and the sights were just breathtaking.
See y’all in class!

Over the break at the end of January I traveled to Vietnam and found this interesting photo on the side of a temple. There were many different pictures illustrating the consequences of good or bad actions. This one teaches that if you are unfaithful you will be reborn as a dog to learn loyalty. I thought that being reborn as a dog would a punishment but actually it’s a lesson! I am sometimes lazy so maybe I will be reborn as an ant to learn hard work! What animal would you be reborn as? If you think this post is strange, don’t worry I’ll be back to running again next time!
This past weekend, I took a trip to Tokyo to visit my brother. We had a great time walking around the city streets, taking in the all the sights and sounds of a bustling metropolis. My brother and I love to people-watch and drift in and out of shops at our leisure, but our most favorite thing to do is eat. There’s no doubt about it, my brother and I are gluttons. We ate our way through Tokyo, enjoying everything from Middle Eastern food to more traditional bowls of ramen. I think one of the highlights of our culinary tour was our stop at the Dominique Ansel bakery. Dominique Ansel is a New York City pastry chef who invented the “cronut” back in the early 2010’s. What is a cronut? It is basically a pastry that is a croissant and donut fusion. It’s chewy, sweet, and beautiful to look at. We were lucky enough to grab a raspberry and praline flavored cronut. It was delicious! I don’t normally like donuts, but these special treats are definitely an exception for me. I can’t wait to go back and get another one!
(Just look at that bad mamma-jamma… YUM!)
