Nothing much is happing this week, except for this magical fall weather. The sunlight is soft and the sky endlessly blue. My husband just bought us a new scooter in a beautiful royal blue color and we’ve enjoyed zipping around Hoi An in the cooler breezes. Our new favorite activity is to take a scooter ride to the beach in the late afternoon, with the sun setting on one side and the moon rising on the other. It’s so peaceful and inspiring!

Little did I know that I would so quickly miss New York City. I’ve been so happy with the tropical sunshine and blue beaches here after a couple of hard winters in the northeast US. Then one mid-October morning it started raining heavily and I found myself nostalgic for the fall in New York.

Did you know that the Vietnamese language has only one word for limes and lemons? Yes, they’re both chanh. Limes are green chanh and lemons are yellow chanh. When I first went grocery shopping in America, I confused the shop keeper by pointing at the limes and asking “How much are these lemons?”. It took me a while, a year to be exact, to get used to using two terms to describe what Vietnamese people consider one fruit.
