I think I’m going to see how many song titles or lyrics I can match up the subjects of my posts.
Last month, I mentioned I had a few exciting things coming up. One of those exciting things involved renewing my passport and applying for visas, because that’s what an American like me has to do in order to enter Vietnam. Americans like me need visas to enter Cambodia too, but we can do that at the border, apparently. We don’t need them for either Hong Kong or the Philippines though.
Basically, this is my roundabout way of saying I’m going to Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong and the Philippines — though not in that order. First we’ll go to my grandmother’s in Manila, and maybe to my uncle’s weekend house in Tagaytay for an Easter lechón. A few days later, we’ll fly to Hanoi before heading to Siem Reap and Angkor Wat. When we return to the Philippines, Keith and I will spend a couple nights in Boracay, return once more to Manila for a big family party, and then we’ll fly to Hong Kong for a quick visit before heading home.
If that paragraph reads as being a little too whirlwindy, that’s because it is. Whirlwindy. I plan on taking a decent amount of pictures, spraying myself with an almost-toxic amount of DEET and eating as much street food as possible. But not balut. I draw the line at hard-boiled partially-developed bird embryos. There are just some things a girl simply can’t do.
