Reminiscent of Home
Photograph by Penny De Los Santos

Originally from the fields of Da Nang, Vietnam, Ha Ngo and her husband of 50 years, Khach Pham, stroll past one of the lush gardens in Oklahoma City's Little Saigon, a Vietnamese enclave in the U.S. heartland. Here for seven years, the two—who don't drive and don't speak English—journey together twice a week to shop at local Vietnamese markets, which stock traditional favorites such as fish paste, pickled vegetables, and rice paper.
