This is M. Chín Mây, 80 years old. His name means Nine Clouds in Vietnamese. He is very calm but full of energy, he has a soft and comforting voice, and he's still rockin' the paddling of his boat. Taking people on his boat wasn't part of the plan as he doesn't have any business but he kindly agreed on taking us for a small trip.
He never left his island called An Bình, in Vietnam, but he likes walking and asked me if I came from France by foot. He was also wondering how far California was—he would like to walk there. Once he knew that I mainly flew, he was concerned about people not having enough air in a plane.
