Low Hanging Fruit
Every time I visit Eh Le Say’s house I am amazed by the abundant variety of shrubs and fruit in their yard. Yesterday when I stopped by, Eh Le Say and I tasted figs and pears from trees in his yard. They had never tasted either, and Mu Nai decided she liked pears. At some time in the past, a home owner had also planted a variety of flowering trees and did extensive gardening. Eh Le Say, his wife, his son William, his sister-in-law and two nephews are becoming established in their new life in America.
The sister-in-law, Than Hla, has a steady job at Purdue Farms. Her oldest son, Naing Soe will start middle school this next year. Her youngest son, Sa Nay Maung Maung is becoming a avid Nintendo player.
Eh Le Say took the family on a beach trip a few weeks ago. He also just recently got a computer and is actually in regular communication with the brother of his wife, Mu Nai and Than Hla. What’s amazing is this communcation is by web cam over the internet and the brother-in-law is still in the refugee camp in Thailand.
