We visited an old favourite, Hoi An, Vietnam. Tam Tam there (the photo) a great bar, Morning Glory a good restaurant. We met a few locals, a person I called ‘the epitome of the human condition’, a thinker, many may have said a beggar. There was also a spot near a bar I referred to as rats corner with actual rats.
We abbreviated that nickname ‘the epitome of human condition’ to ‘TEOHC’ pronounced “teok”. He was always looking about in the refuse, I found it difficult to clearly understand his purpose. It was as though he was looking for something specific. What it might be escaped me. It wasn’t clear as he put all manner of things in his pockets.
