All of our blog reader friends --- there will be a new story or two in the next very few days. We have been traveling where there is not secure wifi so we haven't been going there so to speak. Pictures have been acquired, places visited, and people talked to so we think you will find it interesting. It continues to amaze me -- the untold story/history of the war and I can say with some confidence that my knowledge was better than average. Two days ago we visited the Ho Chi Minh Trail museum/park south and east of Hanoi and learned a lot --- just one little factoid: the trails or roads comprised a total of 20,000 kilometers or 12,000 miles!
We also went up in the mountains of northern Vietnam and will report on that excursion, too, shortly. When we get a few photos ready we will stick them and the stories up here. We ask your tolerance while we travel and work to post.
