Great photos of a great country.
Me an my lady went back in 89 and loved it! Only snaffu was back before the official year of tourism (91) you could only travel on gov'mt bus tours and the central highlands were OFF LIMITS. Anyway we hired a driver and a 67 Chev and made for Pleiku since I was based there for a few months in 70. Life was good hanging en route in Dalat till the gov soldiers showed up. Bought our way out of that mess with cigarettes and high tailed it back to Saigon for the first plane to Bangkok. Sad really cause the country is great and the locals even better. Pan B was to retire near Nha Trang or Vung Tau but apparently the Wall street suits had other plans for my retirement money.
Thanks for the pics and memories
