The Better World Books excursion to south east Asia has begun successfully. Niko, Yanna, Damara, Natasha and myself (Aaron) have all survived the ~20 hours of flights to arrive in Ho Chi Min, ready to embrace the culture.
No time for elaborate postings right now, we are off to see a Pagoda.
Little known fact: our flight took us over the North Pole. We left Chicago and headed due North, contrary to my expectations that we would go West. I almost went to knock on the cockpit, but I decided to trust in the Pilot. We circumnavigated the globe and arrived safely with no Internatonal incidents of note to report.
see you soon from the other side of the world.
