9 Mar: Glad Rags

Starting with the events yesterday for International Womens Day, we have seen many women wearing the Vietnamese formal attire, called ao dai (pronounced ow-zhai). The PeaceTrees leader was wearing hers too. We all oohed and ahed over these. So Madam Thuy arranged for us to have an appointment with the ao dai tailor when we returned to Dong Ha in the afternoon. This outfit consists of a brilliantly colored silk tunic and trousers. So many colors!

Several of us were quickly measured, and we should see the results on Monday.
