... is NEW and remarkably...HERE! And a great card from Lois and Larry...maybe put it up on FACEBOOK if that is possible. And one from the Captain.
So it was a lazy day...just up and down the stairs a few times...being 2 flights up to food and exercises and two flights down to food and entertainment you can do a good 20 flights in a day. We learned about Vietnam again today, next port. Missed the horse whisperers' talk ...

It took us over an hour to get out of the airport - first line to buy a visa (a pure money grab), a second line for immigration which got really bogged down because you had to show proof of your exit airline flight which many people did not have handy, and a 3rd line to inspect our bags before leaving the baggage area! Then we had to negotiate our way through the porters and competing taxi services who all named ...
