Thanks a lot Johnson

Right then, Vietnam.

This is my traditional “how to find me should you need to find me” post – when, where, etc. I’ll post more artfully constructed thoughts on the trip in the future.

High level – I’ll be in transit (with a stop in Tokyo) from May 13th until May 15th. I’ll be in Hanoi from the 15th to the 23rd, hopefully spending the 19th to the 21st on Cat Ba island (in Ha Lon bay).

I’ll be in Hoi An on the 23rd, 24th and 25th. Then I’ll be in Ho Chi Minh City from the 25th to the 29th, returning to the States on the 30th.

If all goes according to plan, my normal US cell phone number will continue to work throughout the trip. Text messaging is a bit more uncertain – iMessages sent to my gmail address should work, other forms of texting will be “wait and see”. I’ll update this post once I know for certain.
