Hello all - Last weekend at the Grizzly Century, I was talking to some people about a bike trip I took in Vietnam about 9 years ago. I wrote an account of the trip that was printed in the ESL Department newsletter at City College of SF, where I was working at the time. It is geared towards fellow ESL teachers, but I thought it might be of interest to club members who like to bike tour in foreign countries. I'm sure, though, that conditions for tourists have changed considerably in the past 9 years. When I went, Vietnam had just recently opened up to Western tourism.
