I am getting my first visitor! Stepho the Besto arrives Sept. 27th, and I get to keep her a whole week! I am so excited. So, I go on my very first (and possibly only unmarried) honeymoon with Kristen and Brooklyn on the 12-14, and then when I get home, I only have 13 days until another taste of home presents itself. Steph and I waitressed together at Garfields about a decade ago, and she has lived an awesome life that I mostly know about through Facebook since then. She is currently living in Chennai, India, and she has a week off work to come see me. I hope that she is as enamored with my new city as I am despite the fact that I have not yet really even learned my way around or done any of the cool, touristy attractions. Regrettably, I won’t know if they are actually cool or only touristy until I do them with her. So excited.
I plan on doing more Phu Quoc updates soon, but I just returned from Back to School night and I am recovering from my first little bout of stomach sickness, so I am off to bed with much to celebrate. Tomorrow’s Friday! This week was short, but the weekend is still more than welcome.
