Happy New Year!!!!!
Last month, I visited Vietnam as a member of "Ethic Minority Outreach NPO" with some of students in Kendai. We had a wonderful time there. Here are some photo I took♪♪
  There is a big flood in Vietnam every year. Especially these kids live in flood-prone area. Some people are flooded out and  many children can't get enough education because their books are washed away by a flood. Our group visited 13 school and gave children notebooks.

                             Many people were riding motorcycle...It was hard to cross the street 

     Playing with ethnic minority children!!Even we couldn't understand their language, we had fun♪♪
    trash box!!! I could find it everywhere in Vietnam. Isn't it cute♪

We could buy anything at the Market.  In Vietnam, most houses don't have refrigerator so people often go to the Market to get fresh vegetables, fish, meat and so on  every day. Everything was fresh in Vietnam♪♪ Ices are delivered every day because they can't make ice in their own house :) Lifestyle in Vietnam was like those of Japan long time ago. I found their lifestyle wonderfull♪♪

SAIGON beer!! It was easier to drink then Japanese beer♪ I was surprised that there is no age limit on drinking alcohol in Vietnam. :0

Swimming at the beach on December!!! At the last day, we had a camping at the beach. The sea was very beautifull...we enjoyed swimming♪♪

  1. Great pictures! It looks like you really had a wonderful time in Vietnam. It is really interesting to learn that they need to get ice delivered each day. It reminds you of how much we all take for granted in our lives...
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip!!

  3. I am glad you had a great trip. Thanks for sharing your photos. It looks like you went to a lot of nice places and helped a lot of people. 13 schools is a lot. I am also looking forward to hearing more about your trip.

  4. Good pictures!
    Can you drink alcohol a lot??

  5. We had a good time in Vietnam! I want to go there with the people who went there this winter again. Did you buy rice papers? How about do "Spring Roll Party"!?^^

  6. Since this isn't an official University trip, you can all go again, even after you graduate. There should be another chance two years from now. I am sure the people you met in Vietnam would enjoy seeing you again. Personally, I think it is cool to make multiple trips and see how much things improve over time.

    Do you guys have any ideas for next year? Since you were so responsible and there were no problems, I was thinking of planning another trip to a new place in February or March. Then we can alternate between places each year. What do you think?

  7. Looks so interesting!
    I want to try SAIGON beer someday:)
