    I first met Khu in 2008 at my Sapa Rooms Sunday Soup Kitchen, he was a shy Black Hmong Boy. Khu and many of his mates would come to Sapa Rooms each Sunday and often a few more times during the week to have a nutritious meal before walking a few KM through the jungle at 10pm in the pitch black to reach his home. This week I met with Khu in Sapa and chatted about his life. After listening to his story I invited him to work in my hotel. He has finished school and is eager to learn some new skills, he expressed an interest to work in a kitchen. I wanted to meet his mother and asked to come with him to his house, we made a date for two days time. Today at 4pm Khu was waiting patiently outside Sapa Rooms hotel, he had had his hair cut and was looking very excited. After taking a couple of photos together we set off on a journey of a lifetime to Khu's house. A journey which has certainly changed my life forever (Sapa keeps doing this to me) Without a doubt this was some of the most incredible views of Sapa I have ever seen. After 1.5 hours of trekking we arrived at Khu's family home, sweaty, muddy from falling over however thoroughly thrilled to have finally made it to Khu's home. Unfortunately his mother didn't get the message we were coming and was out, somewhere, nobody really knew where. Instead we were introduced to Su, Khu's sickle whealing older brother. Su was the most articulate, self confident Black Hmong young man I have ever met. After much discussion about their lives, hardships they face and future dreams, we arranged for Khu to join us tomorrow on a Sapa Rooms staff outting to Hmong Mountain Retreat to introduce him to the staff team. So...the journey to Khu's house today has helped me to reflect on the past 6 years I have known him. I'm thrilled to have been able to play a small part in his life, making it a little easier for him each night when we offered him a nutritious meal before his HUGE trek home in the darkness. I am sure he will take this opportunity presented to him and learn many skills in our organisation, I look forward to seeing Khu grow and develop in the coming years. What a fantastic day and a wonderful story to share.
