When my sisters and I first came to Vietnam as little kids, we stayed in a poor district in my grandparents’ house. We stayed and went to school there for 4-5 years before we came back to the United States. It wasn’t a very sanitary place and it was full of mosquitoes. We were sick often and it was bad, so we were sent back to the U.S. While my sisters and I were going to school in America, after many years of my parents’ hard work in Vietnam, they raised enough money to build a better home in a different district. It has been our vacation home since 2012-2013. When we go to Vietnam every summer, Vietnam changes a little. They’ve become more eco-friendly and sanitary. They’ve evolved a lot in their food and clothing industry since when we were there and it’s just so amazing how they did that, while keeping their old Vietnamese traditions as well.
