Last night was our third volume of PKN in Ho Chi Minh City. Each event seems to get better and better! Thanks to all of those that presented and attended.
Rainy season is upon us once more in southern Vietnam but about 70 people still braved the downpour to make it to Goc Pho Café in this Phu Nhuan neighborhood!
We had 8 presenters lined up for the evening on a great variety of topics:
-Why People Climb Mountains, Kevin Weingarten
-Thinking Outside the Box, Lindsay Erdman
-Fashion4Freedom… the project and the shoes, Rachael Carson
-Tree Planting in Canada, Dan Van Engelen
-Lollypop Music, Wade Johnston (thanks for the live music and delicious lollypops Wade!)
-Jumping shots!, Stacia Maiorani
-Being an International Pet Parent, Elizabeth Hunt-Lucarini
-Analogue Photography, Nikki Bisenieks
Linh joined us with 40 beautiful notebooks, created from children's coloring projects of awesome zodiac signs! She is raising money for an orphanage in District 2 in HCMC that desperately needs reconstruction... raising the ground floor and bathrooms so that the rainy season's monsoons don't flood inside. She sold all 40 throughout the evening... making FOUR MILLION in VND to go to the orphanage! YEEEAAHHH!
During the halfway break we also made paper airplanes out of Quito’s Vol. 6 poster and flew them around the café! …Photos to come (will be posted on the Vol. 3 event page of HCMC).
Each event seems to gain more and more people. It was great to see so many past presenters there last night… and just hear everyone saying that they had a great time.
We made it through the microphone glitches, the noisy blending of drinks, and again – the RAIN!
Below are some of the photos we've collected so far from last night's fun:
