A wordy trip around Vietnam

Paula has given us some terrific words in her Pick-a-Word challenge this week, words that will take us on a speedy trip around Vietnam. This is a country of immense physical beauty, welcoming people, tempting food and wine and an intriguing and often poignant history.

  1. This post has wowed me: to find this example for “coalesce” is pretty amazing, your “dawning” is a beauty and your verdant fields truly gorgeous. Well done, Debbie!

  2. LOVE this post – artsy and varied and the coffee condensed take is my fav – not just I like coffee – the table – the streaks – the melted cubes – the mood – the layers the leftover feeling – such a moody picture makes me want to write

  3. Masterfully done, Debs. Paula will be impressed. 🙂 🙂 I didn’t expect to find condensed milk here, though it was part of my staple diet when I was a child. Dawning, verdant and sempiternal are stunning.

    1. Thanks Jo Evaporated milk was my staple diet! I was bottle fed with that as the doctor told my mum it was better than breast-feeding! I can see that it was a common back in 50s and 60s. And evaporated milk, banana and sugar was a common treat when i was young.
