This post is about beer. Yes, beer. Derek and I are from Colorado, USA which is known (among other things) for having a plethora of micro-brew beers to choose from. Beers full of flavor. Beers that are enjoyable to drink. My personal favorites are Wit beers, which are nearly impossible to find in Vietnam...
According to this article, Pasteur Street Brewing Company is operated by a couple from our home state of Colorado. We stopped by last night with a group of expat-teacher friends to give their beers a try. Some were great, some were good, and some needed some work, but I would have happily chosen ANY of them over the onslaught of flavorless beer that exists in Vietnam. You can clearly see my joy in the pictures below.
Now, when will they start selling growlers?

Right before Derek flew to Bangkok, we were contacted by a couple of schools asking to set up interviews. This was very refreshing because we were so nervous about getting good jobs. I actually interviewed via Skype for two different positions while Derek was in the air, headed to Thailand.
As soon as Derek got to Bangkok, before the fair technically started, Derek interviewed with one of the schools I had interviewed with that morning via Skype. At the end of the interview, he was offered the jobs. We discussed the school, positions, country, and package at length and decided it would be hard to find something that would fit us better. Derek went to them Friday morning and signed the contract. He flew out that afternoon and was able to be home in time for Owen's birthday after all.
So the question is: Where is the Swanson Family going next?
