gia đình (family)

My uncle who's been in town just gave me a cd containing so many incredible images of my Dad's family from the 30s to the 70s in Vietnam. Here are some of my favorites which are literally blowing my mind right now. What can I say? My family is awesome.

Family gathering, Hoa Binh, 1938
(We were like the Corleone family of Vietnam.)

My grandparents with siblings, Hanoi, circa 1940
(How editorial is this?)

My aunt + grandmother, Hanoi, circa 1950
(How precious were they?)

Song Hong dike, 1953
(How cool is that car?)

My dad and his sister, Saigon, 1956
(My dad looks like he's wearing Acne head to toe... As I grow older, I'm looking more like him in so many ways!)
