Saigon Stories – The expatriate life in Saigon

Living in Saigon as an ex-pat has almost always been a pleasant experience for me. Yet, when I go back to the USA and tell people I live in Nam, they look at me like I have three heads. On the other hand, nobody has ever asked me why I live in Saigon while in Saigon. In fact, most people I meet here who are not living here yet, make plans to do so.

Saigon Stories – Last Night

Last night the we held the Middle Eastern carpet auction at the club. Some of the best carpets from the Middle East where there and I actually learned something about them. I also saw some members dropping major cash like never before. The highest carpet went for $10,000!!!!

Saigon Stories – Today's Adventure

Today was actually not so adventuresome. However, today the Buddhist funeral infront of my house ended. The old lady who spoke to me in French not 6 months before and told me to “Firmez le porte doucemont” passed away. They then erected a shrine and had chants, prayers and visitors for three days. It was really something to experience and I had never seen anything like that before.
