Updates: Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon

When: 29 April 2017

I'm thoroughly enjoying Saigon, Vietnam! I'm also making good progress with the Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon:
  1. The Book of Life, by Deborah Harkness (100% completed. HURRAH!)
  2. The Long Ships, by Frans G. Bengtsson (40% completed)
The Saigon traffic was crazy. The travel time to the Mekong Delta which was supposed to be around 2.5 hours was stretched to 4 hours, and that excluded the return trip. However, the 8-hour stuck-in-traffic situation was well worth it because a) I got lots of reading time and b) I met a group of really nice travel buddies consisting of a Canadian lady, a Japanese couple, and two French girls. We're all stuck in the van but we're a happy bunch getting to know one another and exchanging stories. I hope to share more about my Vietnam adventure in upcoming posts!
