This is Part 3 of my 7-day trip to the Central Vietnam (from 3 Aug to 9 Aug 2012). When I said “I would like to go to small island”, the local people on Lý Sơn island understood it was “An Binh island” as they often say so. Lý Sơn island district consits of two islands which are Lý Sơn island and An Bình island. While Lý Sơn island has two communes with about 21,000 people, there is only one commune on An Bình island and it has the same name An Bình. It is a small island with over 100 households, ie about 500 people.

This is Part 1 of my 7-day trip to the Central Vietnam (from 3 Aug to 9 Aug 2012). On this trip I traveled with my parents, sister and nephew to Quảng Ngãi province and visited the village where my father was born. It has been a long time since my last visit, so things have changed. My father was born in a wealthy family in the Central Vietnam and many poor people in the village worked on my grandfather’s land. However, my grandfather was a good man and he followed the communist party. In 1954, when my father was 19 years old, he traveled on a Polish ship to the North for training, hoping he would go back home as a cadre two years later. The Vietnam war happened and it lasted 21 years (from ... read more
