Sunday, 24 Apr 2011 | Views [205]

I arrived in Hanoi, North Vietnam by taking a 12-hour sleeper train from Hue; thinking that would be better than the bus. Well - maybe I did have a little bit more room but it was an old musty train that made alot of noise and was much bumpier ... Read more >

Thursday, 24 Mar 2011 | Views [236]

Wednesday, I took a tour to the Cao Dai Temple and the Cu Chi tunnels.   It was quite a contrast to go to the temple in the morning and then the tunnels in the afternoon, but they do that due to proximity of each other.   The Cao Dai temple ... Read more >

Arriving in Vietnam

Thursday, 3 Mar 2011 | Views [206]

I arrived safely in Vietnam about four days ago.   It was so nice to have a good airport experience since I had so many problems in Egypt. It is just amazing how poorly the Egypt airport manages. In Chennai, India it was so nice there were people ... Read more >
