Quyen and Her Family
I spent most of 2010 in Vietnam and became good friends with Quyen (as well as Trang) and their families. One day they made us lunch and they wanted to go shopping first at the market. The shopping took forever, which I would not have minded were it not 104 degrees. I think through at least an hour of haggling, they saved about $1. Anyway, they were determined to haggle and so it took forever. But, we got the meat and the vegetables and the three girls cooked us a wonderful meal. The woman with Quyen is her mother. After the meal, Quyen and Trang decided I had to take an image of them in front of the gate. Neither of them is camera shy.
