Where I stayed
Hien Guest House
In recent news, we spent three days milking the city of Saigon for all it was worth and have made our way to the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam. An historic river system with roots tied deep in the Vietnam War, Teddy and I felt it was best to pay our respects to all fallen service men and women via a nice bike ride from Saigon to the unknown city of Cantho--a province storied in Mekong River lure and the town home to the world famous Vietnam floating markets. Once a small dot on a "Lonely Planet" map, Cantho now has been magically transformed itself into a city of charm: twilight couples flirting in the morning sun through cheerful games of bad mitten, innocent kids braiding necklaces and hair in the community square, and non-English speaking Vietnamese of all ages generously giving direction after direction to two hopelessly lost white men on a bike they rented without any automotive clue whatsoever. With the aid of a citizenship and the beating heart of a 1986 Honda V2 "All-Round," we have arrived at the Hien Guesthouse in time to witness the miracle that was Landon Donovan's goal in the 93rd minute against Algeria
Tomorrow we will travel across intercontinental lines to Phnom Penh, Cambodia (pronounced Nom-Pen). At some point during the next week we will spend a day at Angkor Wat, one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world. The last few computers have not uploaded my pictures, but they're amazing and you will see them shortly.
Good Night and God Bless America,
