Here’s a note from Vicky Ann, written in her little black book on Saturday.
Nothing electronic can replace an adventure like this, and thanks to my friend, Tim, it is all possible.
I’ve climbed more steps on my way to temples and pagodas, crouched through two adjoining Vinh Moc war tunnels, paddled in and out of nine water caves, seen amazing sea creatures, and met some of the hardest working people in my life.
Only day 13 of a 29-day trip! Overnight train tonight and, soon, on to Cambodia, if all goes as planned.
I’m writing this poolside as Vicky Ann swims in the frigid hotel pool with two Russian women. She’s yelling to me about our plans to swim in the ocean this afternoon and making new friends, even though they don’t speak a word of English. Every day is an adventure!
