If last week was my social media Sunday, today was silly Sunday!!!
You all know or have met via this blog my dear friend Pete. Well after not seeing each other for a few months (our schedules are a bit nutty and he lives up in Sapa), we were able to squeeze in some quality Pete & Shanna time this week.
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the Metropole on Wednesday with Pete’s new iPad in hand and a few games of Angry Birds. (HilARious!!!) Quite a scene, the two of us giggling over an electronic device in the middle of a posh restaurant! Today, we met up for brunch at Joma.
Joma is this great coffee place which has its roots in Laos. They serve excellent coffee, fresh-baked breads and bagels and homemade pastries and such. Whenever I visit Luang Prabang, I usually make a stop at Joma. It’s simply delicious. I knew Joma had moved into Hanoi, but I didn’t know that they opened two cafes, one being just down the street! Woo hoo!
There’s no telling what will happen when Pete and I get together. You can count on the fact that we will laugh our asses off and chat up a storm. One fun thing Pete and I have in common is that we have both lived in Japan. So we can use some of the fun Japanese phrases and keep the language alive in both our heads.
Pete is one of those friends whom with I have no reservations. I am 100% Shanna Banana when I’m with him and it’s nice to laugh and be silly and feel the freedom to talk about anything and everything. I’ve just come home and while I’m sleepy from a late night and an early/noisy morning, my visit with Pete always puts a pep in my step and a smile on my face. I’m happy and super content with the world! Thanks Pete! Love you buddy!!!
