Day 6: Sun, Jan. 17
Day 7: Mon, Jan. 18 (MLK Day)
I didn't take any pictures on Monday, but we visited Cyndi Nyugen, a prominent community member of the Vietnamese-American community in New Orleans East. She previously visited us at Macalester fall semester and this time, she gave us a tour of her community. She emphasized the importance of Catholicism and Mary Queen of Vietnam Church in her neighborhood. The church kept the community together before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina. Their close-knitted community was one of the reasons that they managed to rebuilt their homes quickly.
Day 8: Tue, Jan. 19
A big thank you to Ruth Janisch Lake, our Bonner mom(!), for taking the some of the photos I uploaded on this trip :)
