Sunday 17 October 2021

My dear Ukrainian friends Anna and Alex came to Vietnam on holiday almost two years ago, and because of Covid, have been stuck here ever since.
So they decided to postpone no longer, 
and tied the proverbial knot here in Tam Ky.
  













A sumptuous meal 
(vegetarian of course) 
was prepared by a team of volunteering ladies.
