Vietnam day 1

Here are just a few photos from the first day of our travels in Vietnam. After about 10 hours of travel, visas and immigration, we didn’t have much time to tour but we spent some time at the Hao Lo prison. Prison brutality is sobering to contemplate no matter your political persuasion.

For a planning type person, having all the arrangements done by some one else is sort of fun. I spend a few minutes with our guide “Ruby” talking about what is ahead and then trust her and the driver to get us there in a safe way. Traffic is crazy. The city of 10 million has 8 million motorbikes and traffic lights that mean nothing. It makes this country boy hold his breath!
