Vietnam (2009)

We arrived in Saigon (still called that although technically it is Ho Chi Min City) at the stroke of midnight bringing in 2009 (with Auld Lange Syne being played in the hotel lobby). Our visits took us from Saigon through Hue to Hanoi. We found a bustling, capitalistic economy with hard working people and motorbikes everywhere. We visited the consulate in Saigon and the Hanoi office of the Philadelphia law firm of Duane Morris.
