No rainbows without rain

A café a day keeps the Vietnamese doctors away

We’ve been in Vietnam a little over two weeks by now, and I think it’s amazing. It might sound crazy, but Vietnam is exactly what I needed. In general, I feel that countries in Southeast Asia are pretty much alike…. Continue reading →
