Teachers' Day Photos

So, Teachers' Day (November 20) here in Vietnam is a big deal - parties, presents, trips, extravaganzas.. you name it! They loooovvveee their teachers here, and I loooovveee that they do! I enjoyed a couple of parties-slash-bbq's, and the managers from VietCom Bank even took Sophia and me to the beach and bought us fancy shmancy presents! Unfortunately, my camera broke so I didn't get my usual 200 snapshots. These below are borrowed from Sophia's iphone. Enjoy!

What would a party with me in attendance be without back flips?
The whole neighborhood showed up! Fiestaaa!!

Unfortunately, there aren't many photos of us at the beach, but it was a very good day. We swam in the ocean and ate a fabulous lunch. The managers at the bank we teach presented us with flowers and bought me two Pierre Cardin shirts.. and a very nice Pierre Cardin wallet for Sophia.

Me and "Milky Way.." Yes, that's the English nickname she chose for herself. Behind us is a rare sight: A very big boss at the bank who is usually very reserved and conservative really let her hair down at the beach! Love this picture! It's a rareity!
After we got back from the day at the beach, the managers invited us for coffee where they lavished us with gifts.

I'm anxiously awaiting Teachers' Day 2010!
