I haven’t posted anything lately because of the very limited access to internet.

We flew from Beijing to Ho Chi Minh City – connecting through Hanoi.

We didn’t get to our hotel until around midnight but we managed to still explore the area.  The place we are staying is popular among backpackers so many of the business speak at least English and we see many “westerners” around the area.

We hit it hard the first night and saw the sun come up :) After a few hours of sleep we met up with some of Kevin’s friends who live in Ho Chi Minh and they showed us around for the day. We didn’t hit the night life as hard but we still managed to make a good showing.  We left to go on a tour of the Cu Chi tunnels. The Cu Chi tunnels were used by the Viet Cong before and during the Vietnam war. We took a boat up and rode the bus back. It was a great experience but it was a little bit odd hearing the story from their points of view.  When we returned to Ho Chi Minh, we went through the War Remnants Museum. Kevin’s friends told us that they just changed the name of the museum from something like “Museum of American War Crimes.” They had American fighter jets, tanks, artillery, etc. on display and there were several floors of photos taken during the war. Many of the images were very graphic and harrowing. Was really surprised they displayed some of the images…

Our schedule has been changed somewhat…we weren’t even supposed to be still in Ho Chi Minh but the other guy that was to meet us last night had some major issues with his flight. Basically, his flight was canceled to mechanical malfunction and was delayed 24 hours.

We were going to go to Phnom Phen to see the killing fields museum and then head up to Angkor Wat. Because of the delay, we are now going to fly directly to Angkor Wat and spend two full days there. Our flight leaves at 11:40am tomorrow.  Eventually we will make it Bangkok – some way, some how…

Has been a great trip!  Feeling great. Haven’t been hit with any traveling bugs – yet.

All for now…
