In the ten days that the 10 members the Vietnam Reporter crew have been frantically pacing the streets and shores of Vietnam, there have been many kind individuals we have had the pleasure of getting to know.
The Vietnamese have welcomed us at every turn and embraced these crazy camera clad creatures busily working in and around them.
They have shared their stories generously and done so, with a smile and a laugh.
I wrote earlier in the trip about the importance of balance in the Vietnamese diet.
I have come to feel that the Vietnamese really embody balance, not just in food but in every aspect of their lives.
They know hard work, the pleasure of food, the enjoyment of family and the importance of making everything work in harmony.
As we pack our bags, despite the hard work, I think we are taking home a little bit of Vietnamese harmony and most vivdly, the faces and smiles of the Vietnamese people.
