Farewell Vietnam and Truc

The last full day in Vietnam, we woke up early and went to the boarding school for ethnic minority students. There are 250 children from grade 6 to 9 selected by their villages at the school. It was the last day of the school year before summer vacation, so we played games and sang songs with them the whole morning. At first, they were very shy but then they became more curious and engaged. Some of the students were very excited to show us their dorm rooms which are quite different from Michigan dorms! Before we left, we donated some school supplies and candies.

Our last night in Vietnam, we had a big dinner as farewell for Truc – our fabulous guide. We feasted on giant prawns, fried squid, clams, vegetables and of course, rice. We hung out the rest of the night and finished off with a special presentation for Truc and a group discussion reflecting on our experience in Vietnam.
