So what was the first thing I did after lunch? At 2pm I paid Cuong's mom a visit and again, it felt like home after two years since the last time she gave me the tightest hug. Then an hour after, the French photographer in Hoi An showed me the ropes about my sunrise workshop for tomorrow. Boat riding was fun enough with Cuong and it was sort of a simple way of appreciating the brighter side of life...as soon as we freed the lamps on the calm river. Again, I have been telling you that I would never end my day without gloating my favorite Traditional Vietnamese grilled meat and some noodles-well I had "cau lau" today. We parted one another through some snapshots of the place under the gleeful street lamps around the corners.
