I'm back home now. The first five days I woke up, I thought I was still in Asia. It's surreal for me making the transition between two very different continents.
Thank you for coming along on this trip. I hope you enjoyed my attempt to look at the culture. This time, I actually had less idea what to expect. Trying to integrate with people is more unpredictable than seeking out sights. I had a few challenges I wasn't expecting. But connecting with the people I met made this trip more memorable than past ones.
Many people have helped along the way. But I just wanted to extend a quick thanks to a couple of friends who made the trip more meaningful for others. Roger Miller helped upload the pictures for everybody to see. And Sam Sebesta donated age-appropriate books for the Vietnamese to learn English.
One thing I try to do is help others benefit from my travels. If you have any questions or feedback, let me know.
