My Vietnam Family

Saigon Steve here. Just reporting in from my new home in Vietnam.

Here I am with my adopted family. We're just enjoying a few of the
sights in this wonderful country.

I wanted you to see this statue, Melbah. Her face reminds me so much of
you.

This is Lien's sister and her niece enjoying the beautiful (deph)
gardens of this Vietnamese theme park. Her sister is studying English at University. I think her face is vibrant.

At the end of the day, Bill and Lien invited me to have dinner with a
few of her family members at a favorite restaurant. The main course
was Goat Satay. Every few minutes we would all do the Vietnamese
toast together: "Moh...Hye...Bah...YO!!!!!!!!" (One, Two, Three,
DRINK!!!!).

During the day at the Theme Park I helped 78 year old auntie to get
up and down the steps. So when it came time for dinner, she plunked
herself down beside me, held tight to my hand and didn't let go for
the evening. It's a good thing I only needed one hand to eat.

So how how are the Vietnamese people treating me so far?

It was only a matter of time before you found a way to run your own country.

I love it. And did they convince you the Emperor really does have clothes on?

March 26 - Snow still lingers here, so soak up the tropical ambiance.
