Last Day in Gò Vấp

I have about 6 more hours here in Gò Vấp -- where about 12 of my cousins live. After this I'll be returning to Chợ Lớn for the last day and a half of my stay in Vietnam. It's been a wonderful and life-changing experience. It's not quite over yet, but here's the best and worst: Best is meeting so much of my family. I met about 18 cousins and about 9 super-close family friends here. The worst is knowing that one of my cousins here is working for about $2.50 (USD) a day, 8 hour days, 7 days a week.
