My Le Thi: I arrived to Australia in the end of 1985, coming as a, with the sponsorship supported by my ex-husband's family.

Unknown interviewer: It must be a very easy trip for you to come to Australia?

My Le Thi: It's easy enough but we had to spend some time in Thailand and probably, I'm not sure what that area was my English wasn't good at that time or not, I didn't speak English at all. So, but they kept us there for two days in Thailand in the little area. And then after that we passed all the checks, checking and we went to Singapore and directly from Singapore to Australia.
