Meeting the parents

Friday night we went to Erik's home to meet his host family. We started out with tea and watermelon, had a short tour of the house, and then drove off in two cars to a restaurant for supper.

We were treated like royalty. The restaurant was gorgeous; we were seated between its two buildings enjoying the mix of indoor and outdoor dining. Our hosts ordered a huge variety of dishes so that we could get a taste of Vietnam. It was all delicious and it was fun to see how well they know Erik and how well he does speaking in Vietnamese. We had a wonderful time getting to know each other.
