andy, don't know if you have been to vietnam. i find it a very interesting place. 30 cents bia hoi (beer) a glass and the locals smoking thuoc lao using a bamboo pipe, all by the roadside.

Hi YG, If my memory still not that rusty, that James Bond movie, 'Man with a golden gun' was filmed here?
Remember seeing these exotic rock formations before.
They're really fantastic.
Lucky you seeing them in person.
Have a nice day, YG, Lee.

Great shots! You're quick on the draw with your point n shoot camera. On a moving boat, once you missed the opportunity, it's gone.
