“I have no desire to leave Vietnam right now.”

OHAMBILEYO  |  COVID STUCK ABROAD
Madia Ueckermann had many exciting trips planned for 2020. In January, with schools on a break for the Lunar New Year, she travelled to Thailand for a short vacation. Then in March, her parents travelled all the way from South Africa to visit her in Da Nang, Vietnam. The family planned to hit many of the popular tourist spots during the month long vacation. Except, the pandemic would turn it into a 3-month long stay in Madia's studio apartment.
