Sweet House, Sweet Life

Friday, December 11, 2009

Sweet House, Sweet Life is the tagline at the hotel we're staying at. And so far, that's been the tagline of our trip as well. Here's some highlights from the first couple of days.

We started out by leading a seminar at PSB college. Here's Neil and Rachel dressed up and ready to go in the cab.



On arrival we were greeted by many smiling faces, including our own. The school created a banner with our portraits to advertise the event.

We had a great time at the university, and the seminar went very smoothly.Thanks to Rachel for the pics, here's some more.

After spending the morning at PSB college we went to an evening Christmas celebration with over 40,000 people in attendance. It was an amazing evening. 

On Saturday, we had the opportunity to tour Ho Chi Minh city. We were lucky to have two great tour guides showing us around. We saw Independence (Reunification) Palace, French colonial Notre Dame Cathedral and Post Office, Giac Lam Pagoda, and the Chinese district of Cholon.

Here's a few shots from the basement at the palace.

We were all pretty worn out after the tour. So we went to Highlands coffee to sit down and relax.
