I spent last week working in HoChihMinh City, Vietnam, helping our customer install a cereal plant. It was a very good experience. There were funny times (talking & ordering food esp), tough times (the work), nice times (nice food ^^), and challenging times (working in different environment). Life in Vietnam reminds me of a simpler time during childhood. Most people are poor. My colleague and I were amazed by the quantity of motobikes and what they can do. Motobikes really can multitask there - carrying goods many times their size. After this trip, I realize I have been a very lucky child, given the priviledge to study and growing up in a comfortable environment. This is because we had kids (about age 12 i guess) working for us - cutting steel, doing welding work. May God bless Vietnam and the people there.
This is the factory, where we work. Thanks a lot to Minh Tuan, Mr. Long and Mr. Hieu, our who guided us around the city, took care of our hotel, transport and everything we needed while we were there.I just had to take a picture of this. Run out of ideas where to take a nap? Here's a hint :p
This is the hotel we were staying - Cao Gia Thinh / Paradise Hotel
I had no time to shop. So while at the airport before flying back, I took some time to write a few postcards to my family and friends.
