Where I stayed
Hanoi Elegance 2 Hotel

Flag of Vietnam  ,
Monday, October 26, 2009

I have arrived safely in Hanoi. The Elegance Hotel travel assistance was terrific once again this year. They arranged my tourist visa on arrival and I received it at the airport. This was much easier and cheaper than going through an expediter and the Embassy in DC. Elegance also arranged the taxi to meet me at the airport. I am happy to say that it had a large trunk!

In Bangkok I gladly paid the fee for overweight baggage. Tuyen came along and met me at the airport with flowers. A huge beautiful bunch. Tonite we enjoyed dinner together and I met a bright lovely young woman who may volunteer to help us. Nguyet is good with computers in English and Vietnamese.

Tuyen tells me how very excited everyone is about the project. They have been waiting for the laptops and I hate to disappoint them, but, they will have to wait a few days longer. We must address the power issues first. I believe we need to be certain that we can recharge at least 1/3 of them at a time, before the first experimentation sessions in the village. Because laptops with dead batteries and no power is not a likely recipe for success.

Tomorrow is another travel day. I leave early for Halong City and will write again when I can.
