January is a month for birthdays. Recently we had a birthday party for three of our teachers. A lot of people were invited so the original plan was to have an outdoor party. It started raining early in the morning and rained for about two days straight. It was the first rain we've had in Da lat in two months. We were able to move the party into the library and everything worked out. The only thing we didn't move into the library was the foosball table that we borrowed from a local bar because it was really heavy. I know because I carried up and down the stairs. The Vietnamese are all really good at foosball. I am embarrassingly bad at it. Watching them play was like watching an actual soccer match.
