The longer I do this the more I find the photography taking more and more time, leaving less and less for describing the places we visit. Perhaps the time is coming to just let the photos tell the story, and interject words when I just must. Here are some images from Vietnam, starting with the night we arrived and before sunrise the next jet-lagged morning in Hanoi.
A short cruise around Halong Bay revealed this magical place of striking borders, scant traditional fishing villages, and a highway for one of the largest shipping ports in the China Sea. the pollution never allowed us many clear skies, but what we saw was stunning.
The a few days in Saigon, where motor scooters outnumber humans 4:1, os something like that. We boarded a National Geographic Cruise of the Mekong delta.
