Christmas is in full swing here in Vietnam. The office staff have gone nuts decorating their spaces with Christmas stuff -- trees, lights, snowflakes hanging from the ceiling and even a giant stuffed Christmas bear. The Tech Team even built a walk-through "ice cave" decorated with lights. Not really sure about the Christmas relevance of the ice cave, but it *is* consistent with the winter theme. It sorta reminds me of my hometown of Burlington, Vermont USA. It's cold like Russia there in the winter. Every few weeks I check out this webcam to see what the weather is doing in Vermont, real time. Looks freakin' cold. Funny how I never thought that freezing cold that will kill you in an hour if you are unprotected was unusual when I was growing up.
I am collecting pics that capture the experience of Christmas in Vietnam for a later post. If any of my readers have good tips for Christmas-y scenes in Saigon, let me know!
Here's a little tidbit to tide you over -- a Christmas tree, Vietnam-style. Enjoy.
