The Sweat Bunny

by Eric

Some people can make shadow puppets. Some people can do origami. Since moving to Vietnam, I've discovered that I have a skill not shared by many others...

Vietnam is hot. The first month was incredibly hot. We were sweating in places we'd never sweat before! It's gotten cooler over the past week or two, which means that the highs are now in the 80s instead of the 90s. That may not sound like a huge change, but we can certainly feel the difference! It's still quite humid most days, but now we can take our bikes out for a ride any time of the day without starting to sweat instantly. When we go out, I often bring my backpack with my camera, laptop, or whatever else we need for the trip.

What do you get when you combine heat, humidity, a large Dutch frame, and a backpack? You get Frank, the sweat bunny.

Instead of making shadow puppets, I make sweat animals. I'm not sure how marketable this skill is, but it's good for a laugh.

Thankfully, Frank hasn't been appearing as often since the rainy season started. I'm hoping he goes away for a long time when we get a motorbike!


  1. This picture has got to be one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen. Thanks for showing us ERIC and I'll be back for more Sweat Bunny photos. Oh, and I've just bought the rights to! Sorry.
