I meet a celebrity in line at the Chinese Embassy
One of my missions in Vietnam is to get my visa for China here. It will be much less of a headache than getting it at home but the Chinese are strict! Because of that, I have been at the Chinese Embassy at opening time the last two mornings. It’s like Breakfast at Tiffany’s only not romantic and you are treated like a naughty child. I was told by the lady at my hostel that if I want to get my visa, I need to dress up for the embassy. So here I am, in my fabulous backpacker finery. A gentleman gets in line behind me who is clearly not a backpacker and probably staying somewhere with an iron. We start talking about our plans for China and as it turns out, he was a singer and going there for work.
Here is one of his music videos.
