Back from Europe and SE Asia

So it has been a busy year so far.  We journeyed to Vietnam and Cambodia on a AMA Waterway’s tour in January.  It was enlightening as well as entertaining.  The Mekong River is long and muddy supporting millions of people along its way.  Above is a blacksmith from Hanoi (Ha Noi) that was written up in a 2010 NY Times article.

We also traveled on a cruise in May of many Baltic ports including the beautiful city of St Petersburg.  The Hermitage Museum was one of the finest I’ve visited.  The building itself is a masterpiece being a former palace of Catherine the Great in the 18th c.  So travel far my friends.  To paraphrase, “Travel is the enemy of prejudice.”
