Asia | South East Asia | Vietnam | South Central coast | Cam Ranh – Turningpoint
I don’t know if it’s A Turningpoint or The Turningpoint. Or if it really matters. Either way – I feel better, a change of mood. After I posted the last page I got a couple of phone calls and several e-mails. And all those reminders mattered so much, knowing that I’m thought about and supported and understood and loved. Your good thoughts, light and prayers have reached me (and are still reaching me). So I’m staying on.
The last news are that my father’s not coming after all. He’s hospitalized – something with the heart. But he hopes to come as soon as he recovers. They told me on Sunday, I was of course the last person to know. Somehow I’m not too worried. I hope to see him though.
I’ve decided to go on vacation (take a vacation from my vacation..). I want to go to Hanoi. Because I read that there are more cultural things there (theaters, concerts++) and from a listing in some magazine there are more bookshops there (then in any other city in Vietnam)! I think of going for a couple of weeks, maybe a month. Just be alone and do things I like doing. But not really running away, because I want to come back to my grandparent’s. I’ll look about for a place to volunteer and if it looks interesting I might go up again after having celebrated Tet with my family in Cam Duc (Tet, the lunar new year, is in the beginning of February I think).
But yesterday I got sick, nothing serious – I caught a cold. So I take that as a sign to not get on the first train (which I almost did). I slept away most of yesterday, listening to my body. This morning I decided to stay until the baby is born. Uncle 4 will have a second daughter in about 2 weeks time. I’m curious to see the little one. And now I feel better allready.
