During the time of the Viet Nam War lots of peoples lives changes forever. life became very un safe, dangerous and hard for the people living in that country .
A young girl called Tan Le her ,sister and grand mother were very much affected by the war. They were about to make one of the biggest decisions of their lives
Tan Le and her family were about to travel to Footscray Australia. Because life was very hard in Vietnam. They had no opportunity's and they would have to start all again. Alghough they were exited to move and avoid the War they were also very scared.
I don't know
how much longer till we get back on the boat
They began the five night journey to Australia. It was very scary because was a chance of pirates coming and capturing them. If that was to happen they would drink a bottle of poison that they prepared before. That would mean that they would eventually die. They believed that dying would be better than being captured.
The journey was long and very scary. They had very limited supply's and limited things to do. It would have been a very hard journey for Tan Le and her family.
It was very hard to move to a new country because they had to learn a new language and start all again with school and everything
