Waking Up Late in Vietnam
Woke up at 7:15am this morning. Nobody was really here, except Hang’s grandparents sitting outside doing whatever they do. Hang’s father was just pulling into the street for work when I woke up, but I couldn’t really see anybody else at home.
The people here wake up super early. I’m talking 5:30am or earlier in some cases. They go to bed around 10:00 or sometimes 10:30, and always wake up very early. Hang woke me up once at 6:30am, and I pretty much said “Hey, I sorta wanna sleep a bit more, thanks” and went back to bed. I woke up at 8:30am that day, and everybody was still here. Nobody seemed to really care too much if the lazy American man slept in on a Saturday.
UPDATED: I wasn’t the only one though. Turns out, Hang and Tuan both slept in as well! HA!
