The best way to arrive in a new country is with a completely open mind and discover a place through the eyes of those who live in. When you've lived with people you can say that you know a little bit the country…and I try to keep this in my mind and try to be open with the people and language some time for the communication doesn’t matter… just smile and try to help them, I try to do my best about communication and for me was enough when I hear some of them call me with my name Ledinà ( with the French accent ). To try to be more closer to the people who lives in the disable center we ( the boys) played a football match. (me just take photos) How to say, when the football brings everybody together without differences! They had a good time together!
Also for my birthday was a great occasion to celebrate all together and where to go if in Asia you don’t go to a Karaoke ! I had my Karaoke birthday party! With some good music and mixed Vietnamese and English songs we had also a great night together ! But I was a little bit sad because the day after me and all the French volunteers had to leave for moving in Hanoi for my last days … I had to say goodbye to all these fantastic people I meet here … !
Hanoi offers the most varied distractions and entertainment , I see more vespas here then in Italy , I try the thrill to ride a motorbike, (no wait it was not me riding the motorbike, I was just sitting and hugging the motor driver with my eyes closed!!!) And what to say about the street food is delicious!! Sample delicious Vietnamese cuisine in the street – like the locals do . I loved Hot Pot ! I will try to prepare it in Italy! The beer corner was our night appointment and our table every night becomes bigger and bigger with new friends like local or tourist. The time in Hanoi pass so fast…and my time to say goodbye to all arrived…
But after concluding I had to thank my friend Nam who was a point of reference for me all this weeks . The work he do here is really inspiring, felling never tired , finding fast solutions for every problem, smiling and playing guitar all the time! The energy he puts to help the disable people here make me feel so good to have this possibility to give him a small hand . If somebody want to come to help him just come! Me im sure I will return!
Hugs to everybody!
