I’m away on vacation in Viet Nam, returning there for the first time in 35 years.

I am podcasting my journey, documenting not only the events, but also thoughts, feelings, stories, reflections, etc. at the T.T. Phone Home podcast page. The podcast below is the fourth one, before I left, with some background information on most of the new people I will be meeting on this trip. I had met them before as a child, but don’t remember most of them. There are also a few other topics within.

Please go to the T.T. Phone Home podcast page if you want to hear more as I podcast before I post them here. I am not blogging while away for digital security risks of my device being stolen, for example. Thank you.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!
