Today, We Are Rock Stars

First of all, many thanks to Brian for helping me get back to English in my Blogger menus!

Much to report from Ho Chi Minh City, but am a bit pressed for time so you'll have to be satisfied for now with a photo and a video from our visit to the International High School here. Apparently, this is the first time they've allowed visitors from US schools, and only a few of us went to test the waters (SUNY Binghamton, Oregon State, the University of Hawaii, the University of Michigan - Flint, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University). They really rolled out the red carpet for us. OK, there wasn't actually a red carpet, but there were uniformed children lined up waving flags as we entered. There was even a song sung for us.

At first I assumed they were singing in Vietnamese, but maybe it's English? Could you tell?

I assumed it was Vietnamese. Whatever language it was, I couldn't understand a word of it.

I could not understand a word either, but they are cute as can be and enthusiastic.

Loved the flag waving reception.
