Well, let me tell you all, web based email is awful! I just spent the better part of an hour composing an email and hit send and it is lost forever.
Suffice it to say we are well and near Ninh Binh in the Red River Delta. Our days are spent bicylcing, boating, and walking the rice paddies. We meet local people and talk together, answering questions about America and asking questions about their lives. People are warm and friendly and we are very much enjoying the trip.
Khanh is our guide and an excellent one indeed. Festival here starts tomorrow (that is why our itinerary is different for those of you who have a copy). The festival honors the founders of the village where Khanh was raised and it should be very interesting.
More at the next internet access. Too bad the computer ate my email.
Love to you!
