Christmas Eve we strolled through Hoi An admiring the lanterns. After my class I have tremendous respect for the skill involved in making each one.
Christmas morning greeting Brent with an Egg Coffee made specially for him by Thi Phan . The hotel doesn’t officially have them on the menu but it’s Thi Phan’s speciality and Brent was thrilled!
We were also greeted by a visit from Santa in a sleigh drawn by water buffalo.
After visiting Santa and enjoying egg coffee we went for a beach stroll. Brent and I came across a fisherman and his family setting out his nets.
We spoke with his father who was clearly proud of his son’s skill as a fisherman. While we couldn’t understand almost anything he said parental pride and joy transcend language barriers.
The rest of the day we read by the pool enjoying the sunshine.
