Happy greetings from Vietnam. It's been a fabulous week here in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon). I've been eating pho noodles and baguettes to my heart's delight. Good bread is something I've missed in my years in Asia, and Vietnam is full of good bread. But, the best part of my time here so far has been the arrival of my father. I hadn't seen him since I moved to Asia two years ago. It has been the most fun reunion and I'm having a blast exploring this country with him. I have him here with me for the next week and I plan on getting him to try a few of South East Asia's famous delights, like durian.
