I lived in Saigon, Vietnam from 1962 until 1965, when we were evacuated as the war heated up. It was my first time out of the US and my friends were all children of State Department and others who had lived in foreign countries their whole lives. The experience was eye-opening for a young teen and an interesting view into other cultures.
