Phu Quoc

Doug Smith
We arrived in Phu Quoc yesterday. Phu Quoc is a small island a bit west of HCMC in southern Vietnam. I wasn’t totally sure of what to expect as some of the comments I had read about the island weren’t totally flattering.

Vietnam, day 0

So far so good, we’ve managed to make it to the airport in one piece. Grady was touch and go for a bit, he was passing out on the skytrain.

Last Trek To Jomsom

Doug Smith
I was really sad to learn this morning that a road is being built to Jomsom. I suppose that it is entirely logical that Nepal shouldn’t stay in medieval times - and believe me, Nepal is very medieval in many ways - but I’m not sure how much help the road will offer the people.

Follow the portals, starting from the picture in this post about my Nepal photos. Nope. Zooomr went out of business a long time ago…
