Today we left My Tho for what was suppose to be a four hour road trip to a beach resort in Mui Ne with all my family. Because of a fuel truck catching on fire and stopping all traffic, this road trip turned out to me much much longer. I would show you some some pictures of the road trip, the fire, and the beach, but the resort’s PC’s won’t allow me to hook up my camera or thumb-drive, and there is no way of hooking up my laptop. So you’ll just have to wait until I get to Honk Kong where there is free Wi-Fi in the airport to upload those pics.
On the way to the beach I did decide to count how many Christian churches I could find and snap as many pics as I could – I lost count after 30, which was surprising to me. I’ll make sure to create a flickr set when I can of all the Vietnamese churches.
Tomorrow will be somber as we spread Mom’s ashes in the ocean as she wished. I’m really glad Mom’s family could come to be a part of this. Not just that I want them to be a part of spreading her ashes, but because they live such a life of poverty that I have an opportunity to treat them to luxury. The price they charge to stay here is unbelievably cheap, it was the least I could do for my family for all the love and affection they’ve shown us. Most of Vietnam is very third-world, this place certainly is not.
I think this will do it for blogging for a while since I can’t upload any pictures, but who knows. Maybe if we are lucky, we’ll run into Brad and Angelina.
