Hi guys
I have seen pancakes for breakfast -- but I usually eat some kind of egg (hard-boiled). Pho is the normal breakfast food around here -- can't say I've tried it -- but my Dad loves it (it's chicken or beef noodle soup). I tried crispy fried noodles today (they were OK). There were shrimp that were alive with a skewer through them the other night at dinner -- and their eyes were big and black - when I got close to them - they moved... and then I fried them. My favorite thing to do so far has been playing soccer with the kids at the school today. Yes there are animals: cats, dogs, pigs (living on a floating market house), roosters, water buffalos, white ducks, and tongue lungs (little house lizards who eat mosquitoes). My cousin Carly is 16 and her sister Abby is 14. they are a lot of fun. Thanks for writing -- please stay in touch.

Hi there
Yes there are many dogs -- they don't appear to be stray. But we saw a couple of stray kittens at our hotel today - 3 to be exact. As far as English goes, our guide speaks English very well -- and everyone else tries to communicate -- they speak English better than i speak Vietnamese for sure.

Stuff
We were wondering about the food you are eating. What kinds of breakfast foods are there, are there pancakes? Besides goat what else have you tried new. What is the grossest thing you have eaten so far. Ellie wondered if there were any eyes in the fish again? What has been your favorite thing to do so far? Are there any animals? and finally for today how old are Abby and Carly?? We hope you continue having a safe and happy journey. Mrs. Magee and Will's Class

Yummy:)
Looks like you're really enjoying the _______?? What is that, Jake? I guess it may be better than cafeteria food! Looks like you're having a great time. Jackson is going to state, so we are getting out of school at 12:40 on Friday. The kids are thrilled. What do they do for fun there? Keep in touch :) Mrs. M
