I’m spending time with family in Cần Thơ at the moment and will not return to Hanoi until this weekend. Every time I fly south and eat home-cooked meals I’m reminded of how everything here completely revolves around relationships.
Whether I’m away from the Mekong Delta for a few months at a time or an entire year, I’m greeted with the same love and care that I was given during my first ever trip here in 2005. I’m fortunate to have a foster family in Vietnam who always has my best interest in mind and who will always look out for me.
It’s amazing to think we’ve been so close for 7 years now. As long as they live in Can Tho I’ll always find time to fly down for visits, especially during important family moments like weddings or illnesses.
