Spent most of my morning writing up yesterday. That’s ok because I hit the pavement pretty hard yesterday and today gets to be a chill day. Not sure what my plans are. I guess that means I don’t have plans. We shall see.
Spent a couple of hours on the phone with T-Mobile trying to get my US SIM card functioning as expected. I cannot send or receive text messages and I cannot receive phone calls. It was working before I added the Vietnam SIM a few days ago. They should operate independently of one another. No one I’ve talked with seems to have any idea what they are doing. Consistent with the current state of customer service.
Wandered around for a while and when I was hungry went to the home cooking place again to try some more of what they offer.
Imagine Scotch eggs without the sausage and with quail eggs. Served with a spicy chili sauce of some sort.
Lime juice and lemon grass. Very tart. You can see the decanter of simple syrup offered so the diner may sweeten to their preference. I used maybe one third.
Pretty good fried brown rice with cashews (the best part) and shredded chicken. (It’s hardly fried rice without those ubiquitous peas and carrots.)
Met a couple of business types working for a Dutch dairy company. One was Australian and the other American (though spent his summers growing up in France). I now have my Dutch dairy needs covered the world over.
Met a group of mostly Japanese friends tied together by a dance instructor. I say mostly because one of them was from Brittany (France) but he has been together with the dance instructor for many years now.
We talked for hours about everything. Gathering around a table is life.
Apparently, Honda has resumed production and US exports of the Supercub. This is an older one with perhaps a few upgraded parts.
Made my way back home. Heard my name called out and saw my new friends waving at me zooming down the street.
Very relaxing day indeed.
