Vietnam: People

One of the highlights of my trip to Vietnam was the people .  I have never felt so welcomed and safe.  They are overly helpful and they want to know about you, your family, your friends, and where you come from.  They also do all this while offering you platters upon platters of food.  They are certainly not defeated by their poverty…infact, it drives them to be entrepreneurs and creative about making a living.  They are hardworking people who, regardless of how busy they get, do not forget to make time for family, friends, and fun.  They hold a very special place in my heart and I look forward to meeting them again.
