We are enjoying our first day in the Mekong delta; the ferry crossings, river views, the traditional, and rapidly changing ways of life. We hope to post some videos as we cycle upriver on what we think is a riverside tiny road. We’ll give it a go tomorrow.

  1. You and Claire are looking much healthier now that you’ve gotten some rest in a hotel bed and some balanced meals. You guys look happy. Saigon and the whole area looks vibrant and progressive. Where do all those rice farmers get the money for those fancy cars?

    I think one thing has been proven over the past thirty years. Get the U.S. out of Asian politics and let the locals fight their own battles. Look at how modern and progressive the Indo-China peninsula has become with us out of the picture. I think that it is very hopeful for the future of the world that in spite of the horrors of that war forty years ago, that our people can go there and be accepted, treated like anyone else in the world.

    Thanks for revealing the secrets of the Asian continent and its many and varied peoples to us.
