    I lived in VN for six months. I had a very pleasant time. The people are friendly, cost of living is low, lots of interesting places to photograph. But where I was in Saigon it was hot and humid for most of the year. The climate is quite varied. I went to Hanoi in winter and it was 37 f. Dalat, in the highlands is pleasant year round. Travel is easy, and I had no hassles at all with police or theft.

    I never made it to Laos. As I was about to go a couple of tourists were bombed in Vientienne. But everyone to whom I spoke who had been there loved it.

    i know lee -
    i drove through south dakota back in 1988, i wish that we had more time
    to stop and photograph these olde homesteads. for a long time there
    was a state-run project through the historical commission to document these
    run-down and abandoned farms ... it was kind of like the state's version of the hsitoric american building survey ( habs ) with measured drawings and photographs.

    one of the most amazing things i saw there was a grain elevator for a soybean cooperative. as we drove on the highway it glistened in the sun and for miles on end there were fields of soybeans as far as the eye could see. as we got closer, it looked like a gigantic gothic cathederal with flying butresses made of steel. we pulled off the road and drove around what seemed to be like one of david lynch's movie location. one of these days i'll get back ...

    I'm not well traveled because I keep going back to:

    Yosemite Valley destinations -

    e.g. El Capitan Meadows
    e.g The Spires Gully
    e.g Any summit
    -especially Higher Cathedral Spire, if so "inclined"
    -or Half Dome
    e.g The Mist Trail
    e.g Midway between The Lost Arrow Spire and The Valley Rim (LF not recommended)

    Tuolumne Meadows destinations:
    e.g The Hot Dog Stand and beyond...

    Cheers
