A lot is going through my mind as I ponder upon my privileges, realizations, and humbling reminders in encountering the bustling capital of Vietnam. I’ve only seen a glimpse, yet the journey so far has awakened something within me that I can’t even describe at this moment. I’m anxious as to what’s to come and eager of what I will learn along the way.
Cambodia is so close! But I cannot forget the imprint this place has left upon me in my first venture into its city. This place has connected with me in showing what more harsh realities this world has to offer, but even more so in allowing me to see in my encounters of how such struggles make some individuals more kind-spirited & strong-willed against such odds. There’s nothing that could have prepared me for this… I can only just immerse myself into this experience for what it is.
