Even at a first glance,
Notice the woman riding side-saddle below- very common.
While there are more motorcycles, there seem to be fewer people per motorcycle than we saw in
We’ve learned that if you wait for a chance to cross the street in

This is for those die-hard Dynasty fans hoping for the second-coming of football-style shoulder pads for women, characters killed off by falling down a flight of stairs, and permed "big hair" (the bigger the hair, the more evil the character!). Recently, Lee has been sporting the Blake Carrington look with the swept feathered 'do.
He almost has enough grey to perfect it!
However, his locks keep him too warm in this humidity, so he's having a haircut as I write. What was that country song about getting a haircut outside of your hometown? Apparently there's a guy where Lee's headed specializing in foreigner hair - we'll see how it turns out from Saigon.
I think Ha Long Bay, Vietnam and the vicinity is the place that I saw pictures of when I was a kid and wanted to go so badly. We will go there in 2006.
Seth and Julie were just there and described it nicely:
We have just come back from two beautiful days in Ha Long bay (gulf of Tonkin). Those that have been there know just how stunning it is, for those that haven’t, picture a flat sea green expanse of water studded with 3,000 limestone karsts jutting straight up from the water forming tiny, uninhabited “mountain-islands.” As the massive blood orange sun set behind the jagged islands the boat staff taught Seth to catch squid off the side of the boat with a handheld net (which was then steamed up for dinner).
Jules and Emily are from Seattle and departed in early 2005 on a trip similar to ours. They don't blog often, but I'm always interested to see what they have to say. Guys, if you read this- we want more blogging! :)
Their last post was about their experiences in Thailand, including a cooking class, people they met, Bangkok, Vietnam, etc.
This sounds nice:
Ahh, I'm excited about Thailand... It's sad to hear they aren't recovering quickly, but we'll do our part I'm sure.
