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.”
