This is my last family dinner photo from the south—for a while, at least. I’m leaving the Mekong Delta tomorrow morning. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sad to go (my nephew cried when I left home tonight, sigh).
Being around family in Can Tho always makes me forget about everything else that’s wrong and focus only on what really matters. In a nutshell, the people in this city are honest, trustworthy, caring, and steadfastly loyal. You’d be hard-pressed to find the same, in such great numbers, anywhere else in this country.
