They became good friends. Son says of Ran "She’s actually my very first Chinese friend."
8 years after, Ran flies to Saigon just to see An-Son after leaving him a message on LinkedIn: “hey An-Son, I’m going to Vietnam next week, are you there?”. Son replies "So I must be here. And we had a wonderful evening sharing so many stories, having so much fun and making so many jokes. 8 years!!! Wow, it’s amazing. Everything was just like happening yesterday."
The two friends have promised each other not to wait another 8 years before seeing each other again.
"So it's Beijing next year for me!" says An-Son.
