A day in the life of a Vietnamese

His name is Bui Duy Binh he is 11 years old and lives with mom, dad and younger brother.

I get up, brush my teeth and get ready for school. My mom usually makes my breakfast. But today, I buy pho, a beef noodle soup, from a street vendor.

6:30 a.m.

Either my mom or dad gives me a ride to school on our motorcycle. Not many people can afford cars here. Because of traffic, it takes 10 minutes to get to school.

7:20 a.m.

I turn in my homework. After that, we have art class. A teacher comes to our room to teach us how to draw. My team chooses me to draw at the board.

3:00 p.m.

When I wake up, I eat yogurt or fruit and start studying. Sometimes, I'll go for a walk in my neighborhood. I stay close to home, because the crowded streets can be dangerous.

I help my mom prepare dinner. Tonight, we make tofu, chicken wings, fried squid and French fries. It is so good!
