Vietnam with Ledina Hyseni - the first week


Hello everybody I’ m Ledina and I’m doing my jobshadowing in Vietnam . I really couldn’t believe to be here. No guide description can compare with the beauty of this country . As I travelled to reach my project from Hanoi to Halong city the first thing that drops in my eyes are the rice fields where here and there rises up a traditional headgear of woman , pointed and beige, look like a comforting presence in nature. It has past already one week and this country is giving me so much . I love staying here so peacefully and full of smiling people . Life in Italy seems so far away and I really don’t want my days finishing.

My experience started in Mai Hoang Center for disabled people where I share my work and experience with other volunteers from France and with my friend and coordinator which we meet in Spain Nam . We had to work really hard because we work To build one part of a disable center destroyed during the typhoon season in 2012 and 2013, the center suffered huge damages from heavy rain, storms and strong winds. So now volunteers work to build this center. But our work here is not only building the house, the disable center is lively ! Needs the help and the ideas of every volunteer to be creative and suggests new ideas , to be open with the disable ! Because is a new reality and need the help of everyone who gives a hand! I really like the fact that local people had the opportunity to come and learn English every night teached by volunteers , it was a very funny way first to put in contact the local people with the disable center reality and for us volunteers , to know more and be more closer with locals. Another activity that some volunteers do in the morning is also teaching English in a Ha long city and also teaching French , you can fell how deep is the French influence here you can find people who speak very good French!

The days of my first week flowed faster and slowly and makes me learn nuances that I never thought to meet… we finished the week with the visit of the amazing Ha long Bay !! This unique bay is with its thousands of islands it forms a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars . Ha Long literally means descending dragon and is often touted by proud Vietnamese as the world’s eight wonder. We had a two days great weekend!
