My Saigon – From Past to Present
By Ginger and Scotch on May 03, 2012
Ginger is a Chinese-American born in Vietnam, living in Dubai and married to a Scotsman - got all that? She went back to visit her birthplace with her mother and saw everything with a new pair of eyes:
"My mom still knows a few people in the maze-like neighborhood where Auntie’s house is. A few neighbors will greet us each time we leave the house. Since Auntie lives in the Cholon district of Saigon, many speak Chinese although I don’t know how to make conversation with them so I just smile shyly and shuffle along with Wee Scotch. The streets around us are free of litter and I notice that each morning they are swept by the shopkeepers or homeowners with triangular straw brooms."
