“Oh, the places you’ll go”

Posted on 24 October, 2015 in Uncategorized

In September, the Biker wrote a blog post, tallying up the places he’s lived ever since. I thought it would be interesting to do a similar one for myself, and here it is:

Le Lai, Quan Tan Binh, SaigonMay 1999 January 11th, 2005More growing up time... until I went study abroad

Durham, NCAugust 2013October 2015More graduate school
Carlisle, PA3 sessions of CTY in 2012 and 2013, roughly 70 days.

Obviously I spent the most time at the place where I grew up. Until now, that house is still a place I hold very dear in my heart, with lots and lots of memories even though I was just a child back then. I can’t recall every single details of those memories, but their impression on me is very strong. My parents have long rented out the entire house to someone else, but I still try to swing by that house whenever I’m back in Vietnam to visit :).
