Rediscovering My Roots: A Trip to Vietnam

It was a steamy day when our plane touched down in Da Nang, Vietnam. But then again, what summer day wasn't hot in Vietnam? Being Texas natives did not make my family immune to the blistering sun. It was the first day of our month-long trip to my parents' birthplace. My dad was from Da Nang, while my mom was from Hue. While Vietnam is where my massive family all came from, my sister and I often felt like tourists. We got odd looks when we conversed with each other in English.

Finding Home

This is Vietnam at 6:00 in the morning. I peer out from the tenth story balcony of my hotel, watching her body wake up. This is Saigon and she is pregnant, pregnant with over eight million people; giving birth to opportunity. Her chest rises and falls with the skyscrapers defining her ribcage and the shops and markets working as organs.

Where To Find Me

The most free twenty four hours I ever experienced in my life were spent on a cramped train barreling along the coast of Vietnam. I, and fourteen other teenagers, slept 4 to a car with our luggage as pillows. Well, some people slept. I went to bed at one in the morning and woke up at four in the morning to stretch, because in an hour we would all have to jump from that moving train as it slowed down just enough to ensure minimal injury.

Vietnam: A Study In Privilege and a Doorknob

It’s pretty common for there to be tension, misunderstanding, and a degree of disconnection between second-generation Americans and their parents. Refugees, in particular, leave their motherland with nothing and must constantly be working in order to afford basic living necessities for themselves and their families.
