|Sunset by the travelling palm tree..|
It has been a few months since I last wrote on this blog and I am happy to be back. I write two blogs, Collage of Life and Expat Diary: Viet Nam. They are the stories of my life...two lives, one in the USA and one in Vietnam. Part of the year I spend in the woods of New Hampshire and the the other under a travelling palm tree in Ho Chi Minh City.
We are nearing our four year anniversary in Vietnam. By expat standards it is a pretty long time. It is more common to see people stay 2-3 years. The flip side to that are the expats who have been here for 10-20 years and there are many. It is not unusual for some to end their working assignments and stay on, deciding that life in Vietnam is to good to leave behind. The lifestyle is relaxed and easy, the people warm and friendly, the cost of living is reasonable and opportunity for many is knocking. It is a dream come true for the budding entrepreneur, especially ones with business savvy. It is a dream come true for those entering retirement, a paradise of sorts.

|Slowly they rise..|
|One after the other..|

As for me..when it fully functional, I hope to moving to the rhythm of another sound..the call of the wild in the woods of New Hampshire. ;)
I hope this works, just to give you an idea. I took this video clip to remember the sights and sounds of a changing landscape, by way of a travelling palm tree.
Thank you for reading along!
