I will say this in closing. If anyone hates these people it is also sin, and by your hate you bring yourself down to the same level with those who oppose the Lord. It is easy to hate someone, but very hard to love someone who comes against you and your Father. I choose love for Christ and all his people. Does this mean we have roll over and play dead because this law was over turned? Not at all.

I spent 6 months in Hoi An in the early 90's, and as you say, it was a quaint little village, so charming, as were it's people. Tourism takes over, and you can't blame the locals for trying to make a living, but it is a shame when those old world charms disappear

I agree with the last comment. Exposing the small businesses and individuals to the world is essential. Unfortunatly, there are many willing to exploit these product makers. They need help to educate tham about business and protecting their livelihoods.

Thanks for such a great post. Having a sister who owned a tourism company in Vietnam, I'm well aware of the 'difficulties' eco tourism faces there. A beautiful country with amazing people, with such poverty and hope running side by side.
