Some trials to living in Vietnam

September 27, 2009

I read Karin Esterhammer's article about riding out the recession in Vietnam ["One Family's Plan B: Sweet Home Vietnam," Sept. 13], where I have been living for more than two years. The article doesn't give a truthful picture of what it's like to live here. The story said there are few cars. I disagree. And although there are some friendly people, not everyone is, and there are as many problems here as in the States. It doesn't matter what the cost of living is; there's a price to pay for the things you can get here. I understand what the author is trying to write about, but it's not all peaches and cream.
