I was unable to get on this website for a while, so I’m about to post two new blogs. This one was written August 24, two days after I landed in Saigon.
Hot. That is the one thing that I have to say about Saigon. I knew that it would be hot, but I didn’t know that it was going to be this hot and humid. All I can say is that I’m glad I cut my hair and shaved part of my head, because otherwise I would have died from the heat on my first day. But other than the heat, I am really loving what I’ve seen so far of Saigon. Our dorm is nice and actually pretty big, and the the view is awesome. We are in District 10, but we have a great view of District 1, which is the original city. All of the students are paired up with another person in the dorm where we are staying and they are here to show us around, help us out, and get acclimated to living here.
