Vietnam?!


Vietnam

Vietnam (Photo credit: jamesonwu)

Until last weekend, visiting Vietnam would never have occurred to me.  Then, I had a brainstorm.  (More like a headache, but that’s another story).

My favorite cousin is married to a man, who spent seven years as a “guest” at the Hanoi Hilton.  (To me, Jane Fonda is still the enemy).  I’ve wanted to write my cousins’ biography.  I suddenly thought, I would like to visit the place where Tom was held, just so I could see it.

It is inexpensive to visit Vietnam and then I looked at the rail travel site, The Man in Seat 61.

This is more a bucket list trip.  When I can.

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
