Greetings from a whole different world!
I’ve now been over 3 months in Vietnam. I’m doing my practical training period here at the mobile phone factory. I’m being a part of the service team which consists many engineers from many countries. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity, since normally it is really hard to see some factory like that because of all the corporational secrets.
This trip has grown me not only as a student, but as a person too. The factory is so multicultural and sharing ideas with other people has made me realize many new things from my country and myself.
Working aside, I’ve loved my stay here in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. Of course Vietnam is a developing country and life here is pretty rough, but once you get used to it and learn more about the culture, you’re going to love it. There are so many things that you cannot see by visiting a short time, you have to live here to understand. And of course for a finnish guy, 30 degrees in december is something to enjoy from…
All the natural beauty of Vietnam is something that you won’t see anywhere else. Especially Halong Bay, which is one of the UNESCO natural heritage sites.
Only two weeks remain until it’s time to come home. Then I’ll be one life changing experience richer.
