It’s back to work I go! After three blissful weeks in Bali, I’m back in Hanoi and have started the new school year off with a new role of ‘Teacher Greeter’ for the New UNIS Teachers arriving today in Hanoi. New Teachers have checked in to the Sheraton on West Lake and I’m looking forward to greeting them all at dinner tonight.
Hanoi is quiet at the moment and still hot. The lakes look beautiful at this time of year with all the lotus ponds blossoming. The fern trees and parks look green and lush. We had a huge rainfall and quite a big thunder storm last night. I enjoyed a bike ride around West Lake to experience the stillness on the lakes and atmosphere of the roadside barbers, bia hois, pho restaurants, fishermen, and model shots! It’s great to be back.
