Huyen's Big Date!

"Who were you on the phone with," I asked.
"My friend from Thailand," Huyen said.
"Who's your friend from Thailand," I asked.
"The Ambassador," Huyen said.

Yup, Huyen is friends with the Ambassador of Thailand. In fact, she went to a Thai restaurant with him and his friends last night on what I like to refer to as "Huyen's big date."

Huyen works with a girl from Thailand and a few months ago went to a Thai party with her where she befriended seemingly every powerful Thai person in Hanoi.

I'm not sure what the point of this blog is except to say that I'm clearly jealous I have never been invited to dinner with an Ambassador.

That's awesome.
Did I tell you about how I met and became friends with the British ambassador to China while traveling in Vietnam?

Really? That's awesome. I'm assuming he wasn't staying at a hostel, right?

Close actually, we were on an overnight boat together in Halong Bay. I made friends with her and her husband's 4 year old first :).
Vietnam must be the place to meet ambassadors.
