Violet Versus Vietnam

Violet's sporadically-updated Vietnam blog documenting her year of teaching English in Tra Vinh and further adventures in Da Lat

Yesterday's Vietnamese Lesson:

"Vy di uong ca phe nha?"

really means

"Violet! Do you want to go get coffee, then get kidnapped? I will take you back to my apartment where you will teach me and my 3 roommates English for two hours, eat a hotpot, take a nap with me and the 3 roommates in a heap on the floor, then wake up and watch a thousand hours of a cartoon about a farting worm. After that we will all go to someone else's house and make banh xeo and you will have to fend off a very drunk man who wants to feed you boiled carrots by hand, then naturally we need to go to karaoke. By this time it will be too late for you to make it back to your guest house before the gates close, so you will spend the night with a girl you'll have just met, in her scary tenement factory housing that has one bathroom for 65 people. Don't worry, it will be fun!"
