Being a big fan of movies like Apocalypse Now, Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Forrest Gump, The Deer Hunter, and Full Metal Jacket, I am truly excited to finally be in Vietnam.
We arrived to a flood.
But we woke up to sunshine.
It’s as hot and humid as they say it is. In fact, I’ve already had a water, frozen drink, and a froyo within the last hour and a half…sitting next to an open fan feels as sweet as swimming in candy.
The excess, can be, well, excessive:
The old city is littered with museums of the war, and temples before it.
Be careful when you cross the street!
Get in a bizarre untranslated water puppet show if you can!
Uncle Ho, here we come!
