waiting....

So who would of thought, but the day I intend on leaving Victoria for the hot weather of Vietnam, it snows! So the between the ice and snow, my flight out of victoria ended up being delayed 2 hours. Luckily my flight in vancouver wasn't set to leave until 2am so when I arrived late at 11:30pm, I still had lots of time. Sadly, my 14 hour flight to Hong Kong was also late and I've missed my connection to ho chi minh city.. So here I wait.. in china... it's currently 9:40am local time and I have till 4:30pm until my flight leaves. My aunt laureen suggested, if I had time here, to leave the airport and go check out the city for a bit before flying out, but I'm afraid if I do that now, I may miss my flight again and that would just be no good haha. So we'll see what happens, it could get crazy.

It's the cleanest airport I've ever seen though. They have these seperate rooms set up as enclosed booths everywhere so people can go in and smoke in them. There's also windows connecting them to the outside world, so if you sit right by them it's like being at the zoo. There's tons of people though, so hopefully my time won't pass to slowly and I can find someone to observe or even chat with until it's time to leave.

Write soon,

Amber
