Two months have passed and I still feel like I haven't covered the whole of Vietnam. Hanoi, HCMC, Dalat, Mekong, Halong, Ha Giang... it's a long list but only the cusp of what Vietnam has to offer. Places like Hoi An, Da Nang and Siem Reap still spring to mind.
Having done something every weekend, I already am getting re shock culture shock being back in New Zealand. The lack of bikes, people, street food and tall buildings will be a thing of the past. The thing I would miss the most would be the cheap, tasty vietnamese food. It's really become a part of my life during my stay here. As I write this, I want to say how grateful I am to be here and enjoy the fruits of this country.
During my two month finance internship, I have acquired skills of cultural agility and adaptability coming into a new country with new cultures and expectations. These skills I believe cannot be learned from staying in New Zealand all my life, so to be given the opportunity to work in Vietnam is something special.
