We’re within one week of take-off! Took a break from pre-departure pressures and enjoyed a long, solo linger over a bowl of mid-morning phở gà (Vietnamese chicken noodle soup). For this, I went to Pho San Marcos – a favorite from when we were living in the neighborhood. Is it perfectly authentic? I don’t know. Is is delicious and soul-soothing? Yep. Good enough for me. Ahhhh.
