On Saturday I was walking in my neighborhood doing some errands. I always enjoy walking around Saigon -- this city is a feast for the senses. Lo and behold, walking through one alleyway I spied the prettiest little
dog you ever did see. She was wearing a string of pearls and a most self-satisfied and happy expression. She was a little frightened of her foreign suitor, however, and her owner helpfully called her over and steadied her while I snapped the pic. Everyone had a good laugh. Little moments like these are magic.
