Catching stories

In Hue, Vietnam, I met Gil Hoelzer from the US. We joined some tours together and we travelled together from Hue to Hoi An. Via e-mail Gil told me later on about some of the experiences he had during his trip. These stories are typical examples about how Asian people live and what keeps them going. It also shows how a little effort on our side can provide (otherwise almost unattainable) opportunities for them. Due to the deep impression these stories made on me, I asked Gil whether I could publish them on my site.
