Vietnam


In January and February 2005 I was in Vietnam. Although I had minor hassles with the not-ready-for-prime-time infrastructure and the psycho-mercantile attitudes of the people I dealt with, I'd still like to go back. Vietnam was a really interesting country with beautiful things to see and great food. Every region has differences in scenery and cuisine. There's much more than pho and conical hats to the country.

Like much of China, Vietnam is communist in little more than name only. There are churches and businesses. I saw no animosity at all towards Americans. (Why would there be? They won.)
