In the Mekong Delta, Vietnam
Picking up a large branch from one of the local fruit trees, we wanted to look at how strong the leaves really were. We were told that these leaves were also used for roofing.

The Road Less Traveled
The road less traveled does, indeed, make all the difference. Even when it comes to your choice of lodging. I have found that looking for lodging a bit outside of the norm not only provides an amazingly different view of the area you are visiting, you immerses you more deeply into the surrounding community and gives you a richer understanding of the people. We chose a boat on the Mekong Delta as our lodging for part of our trip through southern Vietnam. We stayed in some beautiful hotels during our trip but, bar none, this was the best part of the trip. For me, the best part of any travel experience is the opportunity you have to be removed completely from your day to day life. It enriches you in a way that nothing else can and, upon your return, makes you that much more appreciative of even the small things in your life.

Remaking Apocalypse Now
Sometimes you have to just give in. When dad says he wants to get on a boat, blast The Doors, and travel upriver into Cambodia to recreate his favorite scenes from Apocalypse Now...well, you agree. You grab your portable iHome. You lather on your sunscreen. And you smile and laugh and talk for hours with your dad.
