Lunch Menu:

Course 1: Fresh shredded green mango salad with scallops, mint leaves and cashew nuts served in a sweet vinaigrette dressing.

Course 2: deep fried Hanoi style spring rolls with shrimp, pork, vermicelli, and vegetables served with a side of sweet and sour fish sauce and red chillies.

Course 3: king crab meat and spinach in a light seafood-based broth

Course 4: grilled cod fish “cha ca”; roasted Wagyu beef medallions with foie gras and a semi-sweet fermented black rice sauce; sautéed “su su” vegetables with garlic (crispy green chayote stems and leaves); steamed sticky glutinous rice with shrimp wrapped in a lotus leaf.

Course 5: a traditional Vietnamese dessert consisting of lotus seeds, longans, and white wood-ear mushrooms served warm and in a light sugary syrup.

    Color us bemused, but we love watching John Bolton’s admiring support of Trump –Pompeo too– vs. Kim Jong-un and those who work his wicked will. Is Bolton playing Carroll’s Cheshire Cat, mayhap his hookah-puffing Caterpillar? Down the road, his self-deprecating memoirs ought to be a stitch.

    Maybe it is time for my fellow combat vets of Nam to put away those camo clothes and don a simple dark suit, white shirt and tie, along with either medals of ribbons of service displayed proudly on the chest. Note how the British treat their veterans and how they respond in general.

    Maybe it is time we elect smarter politicians, not power seekers nor know-it-alls.

    Trump is doing what a good bussinessman does, he creates deals that put people to work. Work is good…it keeps men out of trouble for the most part. Less time for fighting, so to speak.

    The healing of wounds is good and natural. Carrying around hate for one’s life is not good.

      Well said, I wonder if the ‘hate’ is more a remembrance of our own POL’s and fellow citizens that turned on those that served.

        No, my ‘hate’ is firmly grounded in what I saw the VC and NVA do to fellow military, POWs AND the Vietnamese villagers who dared not grovel to the VC/NVA demands. There’s also that little bit about the ‘North’, after their US Democrat-supported win, spending years effecting a genocide against the Hmong and Nung, using chem/bio weapons in the process.

        I’ll sheath my ‘hate’ when the European Jews join hands with the remaining Nazis and forgive them for the Holocaust. The primary difference between what the STILL Communist Vietnamese and the Nazis did was a matter of scale.

          czarowniczy, we were in Ha Noi three years ago, completing an adoption. Each morning, the propaganda speakers would blare out the “news” of the day. As our car drove through the city, old men in Mao clothes stood on the sidewalks, smoked and stared as we passed. While there was plenty of business in the Old Quarter, and there were some more monied parts of Ha Noi that look a little western, the old folks still have plenty of hate.

            I was getting ready to get on a privately chartered plane that was to fly Saigon and pick up a load of orphans when, we were told, State forced the orphan lifts to stop. Many of those orphans being taken out were half-breed Vietnamese/Western children who were rejected by the Vietnamese and lived a miserable life. Americans are taught that only white America is racist, every other place is one big Barney land that is just broke as we stole their money.

            Congratulations on your adoption, you can be sure that you child will have a far better and loving existence than in the People’s Republic. Blessings on you all.
