This man was clipping a rooster's feathers (we think it was alive)

This man really wanted his picture taken- the camera scared his daughter :(

As we pack to leave and fly to Hanoi tomorrow, I can't help but be a little sad. I love Saigon and all it has to offer. I will definitely miss it. But I am also sad that we are getting farther and farther away from Aiden's birthplace. After the G & R, my mom and I took Aiden out for a walk. Lots of bugs, but so worth it. Everyone was so happy yet that had next to nothing. Kind of like the oprhanage. There wasn't much there, but they had a lot of love. There were a few nicer houses on the street, but the majority had very little. And, looking back, they didn't try to sell you anything like here in HCMC. They were just happy to see an American with a Camau baby. They were proud when they could say hello in English. They all wanted their pictures taken. All of the kids wanted to kiss Aiden and shake our hands. We were quite the sight. I will never forget the sights and sounds I encountered on that walk. I know we will go back someday, but it will probably be a while.
Okay, blogger is being a pain so all of the pictures are at the beginning. I have so many pictures but am just sharing a few of my favorites.
