i have a fascination for the evolving communication forms of the internet and the way we live our lives alone and in groups, with meaning for ourselves and others distributed along curves we can sometimes see and manage and sometimes don't even know exist

War Remnants Museum

War Remnants Museum Ho Chi Minh City You can see the old weapons from the street. Tanks, jets, helicopters. Morning traffic roared behind me and the noise subsided once inside the museum compound. Thick steel. Military green paint and numbers painted in white on the sides. Must have meant something to somebody sometime. I wandered, … Continue reading

Sherwood Residences HCMC

Sherwood Residences Ho Chi Minh City The airport pickup went smoothly and when the driver pulled up to the hotel we knew we would be looked after well. The apartment wasn’t quite ready but we only had to wait about half an hour even though it was still morning. Once we did enter the apartment … Continue reading

Green Bamboo Cooking School – Hoi An

Green Bamboo Cooking School It was raining hard when we reached the corner of Cau Dai and the alleyway leading to our hotel. The van stopped to pick us up and Van, our chef-teacher for the day jumped out to greet us. The van was full and we were 12 in all. The van maneuvered … Continue reading

Banh Xéo Dinh Cong Trang

Banh Xéo Dinh Cong Trang Ho Chi Minh City This is another place to eat that is on my list. The night we went was historic, really.

Some restaurants in HCMC

Quan Ngon 138 Ho Chi Minh City This place was on my list of restaurants to eat at so when we arrived I was already biased I guess, but I wasn’t disappointed. We sat outside as the evening air cooled. Coming from North America in January, the heat was a treat. The restaurant is in … Continue reading

Vietnam this past week

We have been here a week now and are getting into the travel mode nicely. Ho Chi Minh City was hot and humid and a good change from the cold back in Vancouver. We were in the streets to celebrate the Under 23 Football win – long time coming for Vietnam football – and the … Continue reading
