Hi Lisa, glad you like the comments. I'll try to keep them coming but finding time to write between tours and meals is very difficult.

SEA Observer
The article sounds impressive for a small landlocked country that only a name is left over for tourists' taste. Most elephants had left Laos, including the few rare white elephants found in Louang Prabang and other northern provinces. They were probably sold out to other countries, particularly Vietnam or China - Lao PDR's usual patronages. Now only about 47% of Laos' forest are left: Sold out soon too!

Hanoi Old Quarter
Hey travellers. Hanoi Old Quarter is one of my favourite places in the world! Try not to get squished by a bike! Hope you shop and eat well, as your will be spoiled for choice in both departments.

Hoi An
If you get the time while in Danang, try to get down to Hoi An. Quaint little town, very pretty, specially at night when all the lanterns are lit. The Market Restaurant across the river from old town is a great place for some nice food, and far cheaper than the pricier glitzy ones in the main area. Lots of great food there anywhere tho really. Also the interior of Marble Mountain is quite impressively atmospheric. And the view from the top of Hai Van Pass north of Danang is amazing on a clear day, both ways.

You are allowing us to travel the world by proxy :-) I'm reading all your daily stories with great interest Alistair. This one was particularly compelling. Thanks!

I'll never forget the sound of that gunfire echoing around the forest at Cu Chi, so surreal as you wandered along trying to listen to the guide tell propaganda stories about the evil invaders. We went for the cheap AK47 option at only $1 a bullet, but looked on in envy as some maniac blew hundreds of USD on several minutes of sustained M30 fire from the back of the jeep. :-)

Brings back memories!
oh the phrases "10 hour bus trip from turned into a 14 hour trip" and "It was mainly an opportunity for the locals to sell their wares at inflated prices to was a bit touristy for me" really bring back memories! Very excited you found a Vietnamese restaurant in Vietnam though lol!
