Tinh Truc Gia "Peaceful Bamboo Family" Hué, Vietnam.  In the heat of Hué's summer wind our young ladies sit on the airy terrace peacefully following the needle up and down with colourful threads, creating charming flower arrangements.   There is chit-chat, some laughter and Mrs. Vong giving instructions. Embroidery is an afternoon activity for some of our residents at Tinh Truc Gia, the Peaceful Bamboo Family in Hué, Vietnam.   We are surrounded by bamboo, by a lush, humid and rich nature. Cicadas and all sorts of birds, and our neighbour's karaoke, fill the air with sounds.   In this lovely atmosphere we chose a flower embroidery, roses in a bamboo vase, to represent Camphill in Vietnam.   www.eurasia.org.vn
