At this point, we are planning to return to Ho Chi Minh City in mid-January to start settling into life in Việt Nam. From there, we hope to make our way into the development community and find opportunities to help with projects.
For now, we are in San Francisco and are about to drive up to the State of Montana to celebrate Christmas with family. There will be snow and ice on some of the highways, but we have done this many times.
We may not be posting any items for the next week or so.
We understand (from reading other blogs) that Vietnamese enjoy Christmas as a time for colored lights and greetings from friends, even though most Vietnamese are not Christian. The spirit of the lights and greetings are universal, and in that spirit, I wish for all of you a Merry Christmas.
