Now from Vietnam

Aaaaaahhhhh. It is so refreshing to be able to blog freely and surf the Internet without special proxies. It is so amazing to sit under a brilliant blue sky and chug fresh fruit juice. It is so cool to be blogging on the beach…in Vietnam.

We are at Mui Ne beach, close to the small city of Phan Thiet, a few hundred kilometers north of Ho Chi Minh City. It is supposed to the kitesurfing capital of Vietnam, but so far the wind has been weak. 😦 No matter. The view is gorgeous. The food is delicious. The people are friendly.

Wish you were here!

    Whew! Those views take my breath away, and I am sure the weather is just as great as the views. I am jealous as I look out MY window and enjoy droopy maple trees swaying in the 50 degree cold, driving rain today. (Yep, nowhere near as nice as palm trees swaying by the beach).

    My husband ummmm. . …spent some time in Vietnam. I think it would be so healing to go back there and see all this beauty. And wireless, too!

    intlxpatr – Get him to go back! It is time. The country is doing well and although I only saw one small part of Vietnam, I was impressed. I saw a few former GIs traveling around to the areas they spent time and they seemed to be glad to be doing that. One young guy we met in Mui Ne had just spent a few weeks traveling with his father, a Vietnam Vet, and his mother. Your husband may not be too impressed by the war museum in Saigon, (and to most Vietnamese it is still Saigon), although it is a must see anyway. The museum depicts the “American War” from the viewpoint of the victors, so you can imagine the tone of the place. Still, those that have visited say it is really worthwhile to see what the propaganda says. Honestly, I felt Vietnam to be a vibrant place with a happy heart. It felt much different from Cambodia, which although I found immensely interesting, felt heavy with the pain of the past.
