Practising a new self

Post date: Nov 29, 2012 3:31:35 PM

I have been impressed with the tree art in and around the city and even in the countryside. Bonsai is big business with some of the bonsai trees being around 2m tall. The photo here is not bonsai but the other extreme where trees are shaped into something quite unique.

Liked the building as well . .

I have enjoyed being with people today and especially enjoyed having dinner with a group of people. My immediate neighbours were from Bali, Lebanon, Nigeria, Malaysia and the UK so very varied conversation. We were taken to a Chinese restaurant on the Saigon river - table literally was built on a jetty. Food good though I was wary. As it was outside and dark there are no photos of the meal.

"Madam is very quiet" is what they say about me

I know this is hard for you to believe but even being at conference today I found myself much quieter than I might otherwise be.

Not sure if this is the new persona that I will keep but as well as being quiet this Sandra is a non drinker who chooses herbal or black tea over other drinks. Not sure whether this makes me more or less interesting.
