Since my last blog entry of test shooting, I did some more test shooting and went to Double Knot for some sushi. But that's not what I am writing to you about today.
Early yesterday afternoon, before hiking up to Ridge Ave, I bought my round trip ticket and multi entry visa to Vietnam for a month in October. I am both excited and a little scared. Excited to go back for that long is going to be an amazing adventure. Lots of food to eat, photograph, and places to see. But worried too, as I will be there alone. Even though I can make friends and meet new people to explore with, at the end of the day.. I am going on my own.
Europe? I traveled around Ireland and Italy on my own, while meeting up and making new friends. But Vietnam? It is a really busy jammed packed place. So this is going to be one massive journey for me- physically and emotionally. Plus I am terrible with the language. So I have four months to at least learn a workable one. Also, this will also use up all vacation days so I won't be able to go to California till late winter of 2017.
But I have to do this. I need to make photographs. So from Oct. 4th to 28th, I will be in Vietnam photographing and eating.
