I enjoy the view from the “papasan” sofa

My wife bought a papasan sofa and I do like it. So comfortable. I could only get to try it *after* the kids went to bed.

On the rooftop there is a jacuzzi, a dining table and a barbecue:

Barbecue Downstairs!

It was a happy coincidence. The landlord had a party in the street with his friends and neighbors around a barbecue. Just the day we moved in! I was glad to meet them downstairs and practice some Vietnamese. Not much I can express for now, but it’s a beginning. Menu: oysters with either garlic, herbs and peanuts otherwise melted cheese.

The beverage was rice wine infused with rose myrtle:

Maybe those few glasses are the reason why I did not update the blog on Friday evening.

The kids were very happy to play in the side street with the other children. It feels good to be outside.

Next Apéritif Coming Soon

I am looking forward to joining this one!
