Well, I am happy to report that we have made it safe and sound to Vietnam. The flights could not have gone any smoother and I actually managed to sleep on the plane for the first time ever. I can only hope that things go just as smoothly on the way home when we have Samuel.

There are quiet a few this about Vietnam that remind me of Africa (the motorcycles, the street side vendors, the traffic...) which is helping it to feel more like home. We took a quick tour of the neighbourhood and got lost a few times (seems neither one of us is good with a map... We miss you Corina!) but managed to find our way without asking for help which made me feel pretty good.

I had thought I was going to meet Samuel today but it turns out it'll be tomorrow instead. For tonight, I will fall asleep knowing that my son is a mere 20 minutes away and that tomorrow morning I will finally see him with my very own eyes.
