Thai Truang Dao is a 92 years old Vietnamese, living in Hoi An with his wife, Thai Mo Ba. He established Cafe Dao in the mid forties, before the battle of Dien Bien Phu and much before the Vietnam War (known as the American War in Vietnam). Cafe Dao was a meeting place for socializing, gossip and friendship.
Bao and his wife were school mates but after their graduation didn't meet until she was 28 years old. Extremely unusal for a Vietnamese woman, Ba hadn't yet married...waiting for Bao whom she loved. They met again, and married.
Bao wasn't drafted by the Vietcong during the American war due to his Chinese ancestry.
