    Dinner with the Locals

    A travel blog entry by mike.kenney on Apr 10, 2015

    ... teens came up to us and asked if they could practice speaking English with us. One boy, named Coffee, spoke English very fluently and got so excited when we accepted his offer to have dinner with him and his family. Coffee was only 15 years old, but he was a very friendly and outgoing guy who apparently always tries to speak to foreigners in town.

    ... barrages killed the commanding officer and all his staff and from that point on the battle was virtually lost. The VM artillery used a strategy not used in modern warfare in that they could actually see their targets as opposed to firing blind from long range or from behind a hill and thus were able to gain great accuracy.

I asked my mother what it meant and although the details are murky the name has stayed with me in the intervening 60 years. It would have been May 1954 when I first saw those words and now I am here.

    After travelling for 14 hours on the night bus from Sapa to Dien Biên Phu, with all sleepers full, locals travelling cheap sitting in the aisles and two crates of chickens on the roof, I was ready for a rest.
