The following are photos of the kiddos Vy and I live with in Vietnam. These photos were taken in Da Lat late last year when we took a big trip there and then right after Tet Holiday in a brief visit we paid to the house while we were staying with Vy’s grandma.
Mrs. Chau in this maze hidden in this weird ass’d cafe in Da Lat. Totally worth wandering around for an hour.
Vy in the blackness of the maze.
People actually live inside the maze.
Like, there are homes hidden in it.
Hobbits? Is that why Vy is smiling? Hobbits?
Kevin, David and Robot Banana
We made it to the top of the place after some struggling.
Nhi making an approriate face.
Abandoned gift shop.
This is a giant cement tiger at the abandoned TIger Cave Falls park. Best waterfall in Vietnam. But, that’s only because it’s abandoned.
Vy! Look at them legs!
This is the tiger cave where the tigers are purported to have lived.
Kevin surveying the waterfall.
Kevin and waterfall.
This is the falls.
Nhi, still making appropriate faces.
Nice photo for once, Nhi!
The boys. Tri always looks 1,000 years old in photos.
Vy and me.
Ms. Ngoc and her children!
Waterfall from the top.
If the park weren’t abandoned, the trash pile here would be 10Xs larger.
Ah! Vietnam’s natural beauty!
The waterfall from the bottom.
Vy watching the kids. Fucking creeper…
Nhi washing her feet off.
Vy and Chau
Me and Chau! She likes me less than Vy and I’ve known her for way longer. Life’s a bitch.
Kevin and the waterfall.
Kevin and I scrambled along this wall.
The kids on top of the falls. This was a little dangerous, but the kids were super badass’d about it.
The pool at the bottom of the falls.
Nhi and Kevin
The kids frolicking in the falls.
Tri and RB are splashing.
Diep being ladylike or something? I don’t know.
Time to cut out!
Chau and Diep
Nhi, dressed as Little Red Riding Hood.
Tri, looking like a dip.
Me, the same.
Make sure your translatoin dictionary isn’t racist.
Wait… is this describing him or what he hunts?
Dave and Nhi.
Vy and the kids.
Tri always tastes food like he’s making out with it HARD.
Vy and Diep
Boo-Boo and Mrs. Thi
This is from Tet. Nhi is rubbing lucky money on her face for good luck.
This is the family that we’re staying with in Nam. The Vo Family, I guess you’d say? Names are weird in VN.
Face rubbing and Chau and Diep making faces.
Me and everybody.
Glob, I’m white. This is the best photo. Less ugly, somehow.
This is the Birth of Man recreation we worked for months to make happen. Diep farted on Tri right when this photo was taken.
Vy and the family!
Vy and Chau
Mr. Tien is taking a photo of a small, flowering bansai. I thought it would be funny to take a picture of him taking a picture of it.
We were all trying to dance and do that one thing from Dirty Dancing, but Diep couldn’t not be ticklish for FIVE SECONDS.
Still can’t do it.
Nope. That’s not it at all.
She can’t let go.
I love this photo. Nhi is trying to show Diep how she’s supposed to hold her arms. It’s really funny.
