Westridge School - Vietnam 2014 - April 5th

Waking up to roosters screaming or bats flying while you're under a mosquito net is quite an experience. But it is a great taste of what life is like here.

Westridge School - Vietnam 2014 - April 4th

Westridge School - Vietnam 2014 - April 1st

I don’t want to look down long enough to write this for fear I’ll miss a spectacular little piece of culture.
