“We’ve met before,” he said “at a Meet Plan Go event in Minneapolis.” I was startled when I received this reply from a random enquiry I made about a photography workshop I was interested in attending in Kauai. It turns out I had indeed met Patrick before. He attended a Meet Plan Go event in [...]

Outfitted in white gloves, she slowly opened the box as if she was opening up a jewelry box. I fully expected to see rubies or sparkling diamonds like in the movie Pretty Woman.

Eating on the Streets in Saigon

10 Comments 05 November 2013
