The thing I remember most about my preschool and primary school days in Vietnam is the fact that it was run by Catholic nuns. While schools helmed by nuns have become less common these days, particularly in North America, the majority of people were Catholic where I grew up, a small village outside of Ho Chi Minh City. By the time I was old enough to attend school, there was no question that I’d attend a Catholic one.
