A bit of magic amid the Saigon hustle and bustle…

20140819_140549

My second day here I joined a pool/gym at The Rex Hotel. I picked this facility because of its proximity to our flat and the relative ease of walking here–four fairly narrow one-way streets to cross. Today was  my third visit to the pool and it was magical. I had moved from the lower pool (first photo) to the empty upper lap pool (second photo, my landmark–Bitexco Tower–in the background) on my back with my eyes closed for several minutes, when I opened my eyes there was a swarm of 30 or so yellow-winged dragonflies about four feet directly above me. I literally caught my breath in surprise!
