Making an exception to a rule sounds better than breaking a rule, right? I made an exception to my rule of not subjecting friends to the business end of my blog. Obviously Barb had it coming -- feast your eyeballs on these adorable sandals she got for $8 in Vietnam. I know what you're thinking -- those are some good-looking arches. Foot fetishes aside, when you count in pedicab fare and sunscreen and Lonely Planet's Vietnam For Nonmotorcyclists, maybe the sandals weren't such a great deal.
