I'm Off

By the time you’re reading this I’ll either be on my first flight, to Portland, Oregon, or in Portland waiting to catch my next flight to San Francisco. From San Francisco I get on a Boeing 777 operated by Asiana Airlines and fly to Seoul (Asiana is a Korean company). This is a new plane with many high tech features. You can see some of them here:

I like the television screens in the backs of the chairs!

Question number 1: What is the longest flight you’ve ever been on? How did you stay entertained?

Question number 2: What should I make sure to do while in Vietnam? Give me some ideas!

Question number 3: What should I make sure not to do while in Vietnam?

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Hi Rachel!
Hope you're enjoying your flights!
If you don't already have a neck pillow you should buy one at the airport. Soduko puzzles can make time fly! With a little luck you will have an interesting person to chat with on your overseas flight - otherwise delve into a good book or puzzle. Relax, suspend any worries - and marvel at what an experience it is to be flying so high and so far!

1) The longest flight have ever been on was to Hawaii and I watched a movie, did a sudoko puzzle, read a magazine, and slept!

2) I think you should go do a couple things first of all go to ALL the temples (if you can!), go to the war bases and go in the underground tunnles, and last but not least drink the snake blood (tell me how it tastes!)!!!

3)Forget any of us!

Rachel-
I miss you already! Joy is very nice and a very good teacher, but I miss you! How was or is your flight??? Did you stay entertained!???
Please don't forget us!-

Hi Rachel,
We miss you. I hope that you are safely in Viet Nam by now. The speaker phone is set up for your room, so go ahead and call us. Thursday was a bit chaotic because as the kids were lining up for art I found out that Linda was on a field trip and there was no art. GRRR. She forgot to tell us. We did house building and then Treasury Board for the whole morning. Joy is so easy to work with. I hope it is okay buty I gave her your password so she can record grades and check your email. I KNOW she won't read your private stuff. It's sunny and beautiful, and it's FRIDAY.
Take care,
Robin

Question number 1: What is the longest flight you’ve ever been on? How did you stay entertained? I have been on a plane for four and a half hours. How long was your ride? Mention it in Your next blog. I stayed entertained by knitting and hook-a-rugging. I fell asleep, too. I also talked to the lady next to me. I was going to Hawii with my family.

Question number 2: What should I make sure to do while in Vietnam? Give me some ideas! I think You should explore the town and talk to new people. Who knows, maybe you will see fireworks or firecrackers or something.If I were you, I would also see if anyone else is staying in your hotel. You might see someone you know!

Question number 3: What should I make sure not to do while in Vietnam? I think that you shouldn't go on huge quests like the people in that movie that took a bike trip around Vietnam. You don't have THAT much time. I hope you have lots of fun and meet a bunch of nice new people. tell us about the people you meet!

My longest flight was from Seattle to London. I think it took 12 hours. I forget what I did. Probably read a book and tried to sleep and watched the movie.

In Vietnam, you should email home as much as possible. I think we need to set up a chat too. Other than that, have fun checking out the life there and the butterflies in the jungle.

What you shouldn't do is forget who loves you most--and I'm not talking Ouisa. Maybe Tobias, but mostly you know who!
