Theme: The Mountain - Dare to Climb

This event occurred on
January 14, 2022
Ho Chi Minh, Ho Chi Minh

It is as difficult to overcome the silence after an epidemic as conquering a mountain. And of course to conquer a mountain we need to have careful preparation, especially a strong mentality. The short pauses that give us a chance to better understand ourselves and then firmly share with those around us are an indication that we are ready to go back and create “poetic” milestones according to our own way.
