Reunification Express – 2 – Typhoon Haiyan

Simon and I thought it would be a marvellous idea to consume a whole chili after breakfast – followed by a swim.

Five years – Part 1

Two important anniversaries seem to have converged at once. The first being that I reached a year in Vietnam. Itself an achievement  as it’s the first time in over six years I have spent a year in one place. A sense of achievement mixed with a few jitters. But when I thought further back something seemed to be even more important.
