And now in Mounds View


I skyped Vietnam last night from 9:30pm-2:30am from my aunts house. In the middle of it my uncle came home from work. He's recently relocated to Mounds View from Vietnam. Skipping everything in between he says that life was better in Vietnam: He and his wife had a better job, worked less hours, and had more fun. But there's a brighter future for his children here.

During my 7-week vacation in Vietnam little did I know that two households within the extended family moved to Mounds View for a total of 12 aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces within the area. Coming back from a family-culture like Vietnam, this was a very pleasant surprise.
