Tomorrow is the last day of Tet, finally. This has actually been one long boring Tet for me. Normally I would spend some time out of the city but this year I just felt like hanging out at home. My alleyway, though quite loud on Day 2 of Tet, has been relatively quiet since with the exception of one yelling kid screaming.
I did get some things accomplished. I finally finished Traders Guns & Money. Clifton let me borrow his book first but I was a slow reader so I had to borrow a copy later from another friend. It was a great book but by the time I got to the end, I was glad to have finished it. Still, I will get a copy a do a more thorough reading next time.
I met another fellow Linux geek on Day 1 of Tet named Pratik. He has his own blog titled BirdBrain. I also met Tung, another new Saigon blogger who authors Saigon in a Cup at the same meeting with Pratik.
Though tomorrow is Day 5 of Tet, I must work and update a website for Operation Reunite. They will have an interview with CNN on Friday and this could be an official launch of the site. I am using WordPress with the site and unfortunately a couple plugins broke some features that I will have to manually add such as the Facebook Add button.
By Friday, many people will start to return to Saigon for day 1 of their workday. The rest will return Sunday night. Saigon should still be a quiet city until then. Just need to remind myself not to go out Sunday afternoon. 🙂
