Adam Stein’s Vietnam

If you visit regularly, you may recall that I broke my hand in early December and pretty much stopped updating this site for a while. At the time, I was in my favorite country of the Southeast Asia trip, Vietnam, and it was frustrating not to be able to post my wide-eyed ramblings. I kept a notebook for future transcription instead.

In the meantime, Adam Stein sent me a link to his Vietnam journal and immediately made my notebook redundant. He’s biking through Vietnam, which is the way it should be seen, instead of through the window of a Sin Café bus glumly cradling a cast. Otherwise, he seems to have made exactly the trip I made, and his travelogue made me snort with recognition.

Do check it out. It’s funny. It’s pithy. It’s about dog meat and saddle sores.
