The Phams Summer 2009 Adventure in Vietnam, Malaysia & Borneo travel blog

The whole family

Tan and his cousins




We arrived in Hanoi and Huy's Dad was there to pick us up at the airport. From there we spent several well planned days visiting various families and friends - and eating exceptionally well. This made Tan very happy. Laura, Kristen and I ordered some tailored clothes and did shopping at the markets. This made us very happy!

We had a very touching visit to Thanh Hoa, a few hours outside Hanoi, to visit Tan's uncle. His family there is so happy and welcoming, we always enjoy our time there. We reminised about the last time we were there, how much the kids have grown, and laughed a lot - until it was time to leave, then there were tears. Tan's uncle is quite sick, having suffered a stroke so they were sad since they said we probably wouldn't see him again.
