Hey Vietnam. You’re a babe. In fact, you’re making our job too easy. There we were getting off the plane expecting to have to work a little to find that sweet shot, but you surprised us down every Hanoi alley and Sapa valley and Ha Long Bay. You’re all green and turquoise, with a drop of purple and a splash of orange.

Oh, and the food. You’re delicious, Vietnam. Has anyone told you lately that you’re mouthwatering? Bánh mi, bún cha, phở, bánh cuốn – we’ll take it all, and eat it all. You’re a charmer, Vietnam. We’ll give you that.
