NEIGHBORHOOD TEMPLE, Saigon, VN. Day 5. One of the reasons why I came on this trip with my mom was to spend some quality time with her since living away from home for the past two years. While we were in Saigon, there were days when we went on side trips, going on market runs and doing everyday tasks like she used to in Vietnam. There are a few occasional days in the year however when we spend several hours (and sometimes days) in advance preparing what to buy to visit a temple to pray. Today was one of those days, where we went to a family one near our neighborhood to light incense for my maternal ancestors.
