It is almost time for the International Lao New Years! I will be going to San Francisco again for New Year, but also for the first Laotian National Conference. During my last trip, I meet some amazing individuals like Jonny Olsen, Ai Thavi (I met him first when Euiy Dara and I had to pick him up at the airport), and Ai Vong. My sisters and I met all of them on our first day in San Francisco. We had gone to a Thai restaurant to eat and there they were. Of course, being the social butterfly that I am, I started talking to them and introduce my sisters. They were very friendly and social. Even though Jonny is American, he acts like he is Khon Lao so he blended in well with all of us.
Everyday we meet people, some will pass through our lives and become passing strangers, some will become acquaintances, some will become our friends for life or even our lovers. These random people effects our lives in small and momentous ways. However, big or small their impact, our lifes are slightly touched. I am excited about the people I will meet again.
