Vietnam in brief


The Lovely Son texted on arrival in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday:

"Hello. Here. Bags in Kuwait but hey. This place like Blade Runner but more mental...." (then a little loving message for his slightly-envious mum).

The lack of bad words, the "but hey" and the reference to a favourite film suggest to me that he's going to love it. Travel without luggage is becoming a family trait.

Ho Chi Minh City was once Hanoi? How exciting to get posts from your son from a country experiencing such an economic and cultural revival.

Saigon, Paul, not Hanoi. Vietnam looks like the most wonderful country to visit!
