UPDATE: We did it! Over $10,000 raised for Pramila, her children + her farm-to-be! We are so thankful for our wonderful community of generous folks. We are so thrilled that we get to be a part of this high-impact fundraiser. And we are so, so, so in awe of the continued connections and momentum that continues to extend from our travels. More reason to keep going when we can!
The above shot is Casey, my brother-in-law, Scott, and our nephew, Kalin on our way to do a little exploring.
I should fill in the gap a little: we loved Vietnam the first time around and knew we would come back but I don’t think either of us thought it would be this soon. The reason we made the jump to get back now, however, is because my sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews moved to Hanoi last summer to teach at an international school.
While on a rather long walk from Tay Ho, general epicenter of expat activity in Hanoi, to the Old Quarter and back up toward West Lake, we came across this small work crew doing some sort of excavation work. Hammers, chisels, and stone walls. Hard to say what the end goal was but we liked the moment. Listen in.
So here we are, playing a bit of catchup while traveling, again, in Hanoi, Vietnam. We're in the process of adding a second focus for this blog over the coming weeks - building a tiny house - but in the meantime...Hanoi at night, from a third floor balcony overlooking some banana fields with the Nhat Tan bridge off in the distance.
