Parties, wet T-Shirt contests, swimming, dancing, drinking and girls gone wild: O shucks, I went to Ft. Lauderdale the wrong time of year. What I found was a nice, clean old motel for a reasonable price. Sort of a laid back community with inviting little stores. It is also a biker's dream. So I got a lot of biking in at Ft Lauderdale. Ft Lauderdale is only an hour drive from the Port of Miami where our cruise ship was located. We liked our place so much we reserved a room for the day after our cruise. The model owner was kind enough to keep my bike so I didn't have to take a chance taking it to the ship's car storage and getting ripped off.
This is my 12 visit to Vietnam
My current mission in Vietnam is going to the home villages of all my neices and nephews that have helped me in Vietnam
In 2005 I biked from Hanoi to Saigon. Probably the greatest trip I ever experienced.
I look forward to returning to Vietnam and enjoying the people and land of Vietnam.
I will be staying with my former Rotary Exchange Student Trang and her husband Huan and daughter Sarah.
I keep a bike at Trang's house and will be biking around Saigon on short trips.
