New York, Hanoi


When you're in Vietnam there are a few
American style places for those with a craving for home.
But I never saw a joint with paintings of
the Wild West or Brooklyn Bridge
or anything else that would remind us of home.
In NY, and most all over the world,
pizza joints have pictures of Italy,
Chinese restaurants pictures of mountains,
and Swedish restaurants feature naked blonds
sucking on IKEA meatballs with
lingonberry jam smeared all over.
A pity you can't find any
Swedish restaurants around.
