Tuần trước, I ran into some friends that were on their way to the beach. Then, hôm qua my cousin told me that her parents were driving to the coast tuần sau for a seaside vacation.

And then, hôm nọ I ran into some travel buddies of mine. Chủ nhật, to be exact. Apparently, they have a big trip planned ngày kia. They will be going on a cruise. So, they will be spending mỗi ngày tuần sau at sea. Then, they will spend một ngày in the Grand Cayman Islands, Cozumel, and Jamaica. How exciting!

They invited me to go, but I told them I was going to Vietnam. So, they asked, Ngày nào anh đi về Việt Nam?” I told them, “Ngày mai tôi đi; But, tuần sau tôi về since tháng sau tôi đi Chile .”

Well, hôm nay thứ hai! So, tôi đi hôm nay. I spent so much time running around tuần này it is hard for me to remember hôm nay là thứ mấy. Besides, tôi đến hôm qua from California. Of all days, I had to pick up my cousin.

Fortunately, my flight home isn’t until next Thứ tư. Therefore, I intend to do nothing but rest at the beach ngày mai!

Last week, I ran into some friends that were on their way to the beach. Then, yesterday my cousin told me that her parents were driving to the coast next week for a seaside vacation.

And then, the other day I ran into some travel buddies of mine. Sunday, to be exact. Apparently, they have a big trip planned the day after tomorrow. They will be going on a cruise. So, they will be spending everyday next week at sea. Then, they will spend a day in the Grand Cayman Islands, Cozumel, and Jamaica. How exciting!

They invited me to go, but I told them I was headed to Vietnam. So, they asked, “when are you leaving for Vietnam?” I told them, “I am going tomorrow”; but, next week, I come back since I go to Chile next month.

Well, today is Monday! So, I leave today. I spent so much time running around this week it is hard for me to remember what day is today. Besides, I arrived yesterday from California. Of all days, I had to pick up my cousin.

Fortunately, my flight home isn’t until next Wednesday. Therefore, I intend to do nothing but rest at the beach tomorrow!
