3 hour drive from Vinh Long to Saigon. 3 hour plane ride from Saigon to Taipei. 11 hour plane ride from Taipei to Los Angeles and a 3 hour car ride back to San Diego. 20 hours travel time and about 4 hours of downtime in airports. That’s a 24 hour trip and it sure is tiring but pretty miraculous in this day and age that one minute you can be on one side of the world and one day later on the other side. Pretty amazing.
Well we made it back home to San Diego. The weather is stormy and cold but I don’t mind because I missed the cold weather after sweating pretty much continuously for 2 weeks. It was a great trip visiting Tu’s family, seeing parts of the world that I have never seen before and getting a chance to visit several different very poor orphanages. I have lots of pictures to go through and develop that should give me a couple of weeks of editing time. It’s good to be back home with all the memories of a great trip.
