Hi JM,

I've finally found some time to blog and my Internet is working so that's an added bonus. For the past month it has been mostly off. I love TELMAX! I found this short video clip about Vietnam and thought that I'd share it with you. I went to Vietnam in 2002. It's a beautiful country with amazing landscapes and great spring rolls. I visited the VC tunnels and we took a boat along the Mekong Delta. We saw Ho Chi Minh and sailed on a Chinese Junk. Here is a short clip. Hanoi

Crossing the road is not for nervous people!

See you tomorrow
