Elizabeth, I drink mostly Sprite and 7-up because we shouldn't drink the tap water here. That means that the ice can't be trusted either. Some hotels and coffee shops are trustworthy, and our guides know where to take us for good water. My parents drink beer and pop too. But one treat I really like is "white coffee," which is condensed milk, very strong coffee and ice. My parents have let me try that a few times. It is so good.

To Sarah; From Will
Sarah, we had a soccer shoot out against the kids from the kew school. They were really good, but we beat them four out of five times! However, my uncle thinks those kids are tougher because they don't play video games!

To Lydia; From Will
Lydia, I ate goat this time around. We were at a barbaque place on a rooftop in Ho Chi Minh City. I got to fry it myself and I like it best well done! It tasted like chewy chicken. It was good with a little spicy sauce.

Riley, there is one sport I can think of that is different... Coa. It is like hacky-sack, but not with a ball, rather it's a 6 inch long plastic piece with feathers on the end. People can hit it with their feet to each other from long distances away! Also, tennis and golf are "for millionaires," and I've seen volleyball nets, badminton courts, basketball courts (in the forbidden city), home made soccer nets and lots of pool tables, even in the most run-down houses you could imagine!

To Ellie; From Will
Ellie, We took Eva Airlines to Vietnam, once in Vietnam we took Vietnam airlines to get around, and to get to China, we took Air China. Obviously, we are in Beijing now, but only got in yesterday (Tuesday). Today we went to the Forbidden City and Tienamin Square, which my mom will blog about later. As for getting the pictures on the blog; we choose from the day's pictures every time before we blog... the computer makes it easy to do. We're going to the Great Wall tomorrow (Thursday).

To Thomas; From Will
Thomas, the sky cab was fun, I got to stick my hand out this little window and touch the tops of trees. My stomach had butterflies because I was so high up. There were only three of us in the cab... my cousin and our tour guide (Quan the Bomb).

To Andy; From Will
Hey Andy, I haven't seen any pancakes yet, I don't think they really eat them here. Some hotels have waffles, but no syrup, just jelly. I usually have cereal for breakfast. As far as the rhyme and the girl, I'll have to call you over spring break! The dedication was great, I played some soccer and met a lot of kids.

Half and half -- I miss the food and my friends -- but the sites are great here. Helen says she'd rather be in Vietnam.

To Steven; From Will
There are traditional vietnamese dress clothes that are like long silk shirts and pants (like for weddings). Women wear them a lot around here. A lot of people wear clothes like ours for business. There are a few Catholic churches here, buddhist temples and a small amount of islamic temples. I miss you guys -- some -- just kidding -- I miss you guys a lot.
