This time next week.


“Lord willing, and if the crick don’t rise” .....

.......this time next week I’ll be on a United Airlines flight from LA to Bangkok, via Tokyo.

Then I’ll have an overnight stay at the Novotel Hotel at Bangkok (BKK) airport (Jan 28/29)

On Jan 29th I’ll fly from Bangkok to Hanoi.

 My adventure will begin in Hanoi with a local company known as

I especially like their commitment to sustainable tourism.

As part of the tour I/we will trek to the village of Sapa, and stay overnight with a local family.

Since I know and believe that my host Vietnamese villagers will also be interested in my family I will take some of my ‘photos to shew to them.
