Meet The Family

During Tet I got to meet lots of new Nguyens. Here's a picture of some of Huyen's extended family:

I mentioned this once on the blog but it's always funny going to big family events with Huyen. Often she is as clueless as I am as to who some people are. She once said to me, "Don't ask me who everyone is because I don't know." I think this is a feeling everyone in the world can relate to. I know that I've been to family events in the past where I recognized people but had no clue how we were related. Can you imagine ten years from now when my kids are looking at pictures of me in Vietnam and say to me, "Dad, who is that your taking pictures with?":

I'll have to look at my kids and say, "Oh, that's your grandma's older brother and his wife....I think"

I know the feeling! Interesting blog! You are so lucky to be in Vietnam. I'm hoping to go overseas soon too.
