Christmas in Paris
While one Jack went to Vietnam the other Jack stayed in Paris for a Christmas of toasting chestnuts on the fire, an enormous jigsaw that will probably take all year to finish and a spontaneous last minute trip to the Opera Garnier, bonne année ! xxx
ONE JACK GOES TO VIETNAM
Taking a trip to Ho Chi Minh... For the first time, jack was astonished to learn of a 'bird club', the idea is to bring your bird to the park and let it sing and chirp with all the other birds before your work day begins, just like taking your dog for a walk, you take your bird for a sing.. as well as bird watching, We played with the fishes in hoi an, said hi to a hall of jolly marble buddhas, got our shoes mended by a crafty street cobbler, watched an ocean full of kite surfers in Mui ne and all the while happily drank the notoriously sweet Vietnamese iced coffee everyday, miam miam !
