While in Vietnam I want to experience the culture, food and people first hand. That is why throughout most of my trip I am eating the native food. But I cheated and saw a Dominos Pizzaria and just had to stop in a get a slice! It was great, I have to admit! Reminds me of home, but today I am back on track. Today, I must return to eating the food fo the local culture at a street-side restaurant. So, it’s frog and dove for dinner! Here are some pictures.
My name is Chris Burns and I have a passion for two things. Telling stories and traveling to new places. I grew up immersing myself in stories by reading books and watching movies. Anytime I could, I would transcend reality by immersing myself into a new story. Then, at the age of 16, I traveled to Timbuktu in Mali, Africa. Suddenly, reality didn’t need transcending. I was there. Experiencing a new world in reality…not just my imagination. Every day since that day I’ve had a thirst for experiencing new cultures and seeing the majestic landmarks that I’d seen in photos or movies. I feel a need to see them for myself, to stand before great monuments like the pyramids and be awestruck before them, to try new foods for the first time, and to connect with people living a life completely different from my own.
