Hello! My name is Sandra Weintraub and I am from the United States. I was born in New York City, but now I live in Los Angeles. I worked for over 40 years in the entertainment industry, mostly writing television and films. I retired a few years ago and decided to travel. After taking three trips with a friend to several countries in Southeast Asia, I wanted to live in my favorite country, Vietnam. In 2019 I moved to Hanoi and traveled around,, visiting many beautiful places. I spent some time in Da Nang, and a month in Da Lat. My trip was cut short because my daughter had a baby and I went home. I can't wait to go back and explore more of your beautiful country. One thing I really enjoyed in Vietnam was talking with students. Many said they learned English in school, but never had a chance to converse with an English speaking person. I learned so much about the country, the culture, and the people, and really enjoyed our conversations.I am looking forward to continuing that through ABVP. Also, I love Vietnamese food and secretly I'm hoping you will give me recipes and cooking tips! I look forward to traveling again when things settle down. I love to cook, read, go to museums, listen to live music, eat food from other countries, and keep experiencing new things. I watch way too much television!
