Arriving in Saigon

Life in Vietnam is many things but for lack of a better term, different. Not a bad different, a good different, a refreshing change from what life is like back home in Buffalo, New York. Arriving in Vietnam was a huge adjustment. I think my body was in adjustment shock mode for the first three weeks I was here. Arriving the day before my program started was not one of the smartest decisions I have made in my lifetime. I was so jet lagged and delusional, my mind and body had no idea what was going on. I was exhausted due to the 12 hour opposite time change and sweating profusely because it was 90 degrees outside and I had just came from 30 degree or below weather in Buffalo. I am thankful for the strong Vietnamese coffee or I would have never survived. I endured through a small case of vertigo and finally started feeling like my human self again by the end of the third week. Luckily I met some amazing people who saw through my weirdness & decided they enjoyed my company. WIN. Anyways, moving anywhere and traveling is a big adjustment that can take a toll on your body and well-being so make sure you always take care of yourself! Listen to your body because it knows what’s best for you. Thanks for reading friends 🙂
