* Promoting an enterprise in a home land, attraction of McDonald's

Ho Chi Minh, a city with noisy car horns and traffic of countles bikes. In a corner of this city, a first ever Vietnamese McDonald's was opened last February.

"The sales are better than expected. We're aiming to open another 100 stores over the next 10 years," said the owner Henry Nguyen (41) in fluent English. Vietnam joined other 120 countries that have McDonald's.

It was because of wariness towards an old enemy's huge capital, that introduction was delayed. However, it is a "symbol of wealth" to Henry, who was raised in America. It took more than 10 year for the store to finally open.

On the same night, he boarded the US army aircraft with his 3 siblings.

The family stayed at a house of their acquaintance in the suburb of Washington. His father worked at variety stores and gasoline stands to send his children to school.

In the meantime, Vietnam was isolated from the international community for invasion into Cambodia, and the citizens went through hardships in daily life due to the Planned Economy policy. Several hundred thousand people evaded the country on boats. They had extreme difficulties making contacts with their relatives until Vietnam restored relations with the US in 1995. His homeland put him in deep misery.

In 1995 when he was a student at Harvard University, he had the chance to visit his homeland to write an article, as a part time job.

I am by that evening, parents, and it is said that I stepped on the United States Armed Forces carrier with three brothers.

The family became a dependent on one room of the acquaintance's house in the suburbs of Washington. Father let a work, children go to school at a general shop and a gas station.

On the other hand, Vietnam stood alone by Cambodian invasion of 78 in the global community, and the life of people was poor in a planned economy. Hundreds of thousands of people got away from the country in a boat. To restoration of diplomatic relations of 95, even communication with the relative of the hometown was full of difficulty. The mother country was the state which drove parents to wretched life.

In 95 of the school days of Harvard University, I visited the mother country by the part-time job of the trip magazine and got an opportunity to write an article.
