a tango to start the gorgeous evening

and a rainbow from phone camera to accompany

to continue with low-key evening, onto another duet Mưa Sài Gòn, Mưa Hà Nội (Sàigòn rain, Hànội rain, not sure why Ái Vân–first singer–looks so uncomfortable, possibly because she’s from Hà Nội. i should get cd though). Relatedly a FANTASTIC blog post about the difference between rain in Saigon and in Hanoi. That is incredibly cool (the post), so accurately reflecting my feeling when i attempt to describe to people rain in the summer here in Boston; the humidity and rain here in Boston is one of the main reasons i moved back east. Brings back also memory of the word “trú mưa” (running mad for cover from rain) which i hardly used since leaving Vietnam. Let me check with that blogger if i could attempt to translate her post, might ask little sister for help, it’s really really cool. Also implied in that post is the difference between people from Saigon and Hanoi, Hanoi people are some of the most complex, if they insist they love you, you better be careful!
