I finally did it! I cooked on Sunday night, with the very appreciated help of Sarah and Adelaide (who both are wonderful cooks). We prepared diner for 5. I decided to do a typical Lebanese table with lots of mezze, depending on whatever ingredients i could find here! So the final choices:
Wa7ad Hummus
Wa7ad tabbouleh
Wa7ad (kind of) moutabal
Wa7ad Battata Harra
Wa7ad Kafta bil fern
Oh et Adelaide a fait une pate a pain, on en a profite pour faire quelques fatayers! 😊
Incroyable hein! Et puis aparement c'etait pas mal... tout le monde a bien mange.

Sinon j'ai passe un weekend assez sympa, au sons de Reggae. On est sortie vendredi, diner (viande au poivre) et puis drinks au cheeky quarter http://newhanoian.xemzi.com/en/venue/show/2056/The-Cheeky-Quarter et puis MORE drinks and a lot of Rhum au Roots bar hhttp://newhanoian.xemzi.com/en/venue/show/1159/Roots.

There are loads of nice places to go out here, and people are tres tres chilled out tout le temps!

Samedi, petit bronzage a la piscine et le soir c'etait la teuf dans un coin perdu de Hanoi (organisee par le roots bar, avec un MC) pareil tres bonne soiree 😊

et le plus lazy des dimanches (toujours fidele a mes lazy sundays) with however a little fantasy touch! One of my colleagues asked me if I would like to come to the park to play with kids, so they can practice their english (hers and her friends) And of course how could I say no!! It was one of the greatest moment I had in Hanoi. I was surrounded by the 7 over excited cutest vietnamese ever! Most of them spoke english, apparently it is mandatory now at school. The two hours I spent with those little things really made my week! 😊 I told Co, my colleague, to organize another gathering next weekend with 14 kids!!!

And btw I still want to bring back home on little huan..mais ptre pas sur mon epaule droite hehehe (rania)

I'll leave you with the pics
