A Transparent Appeal For Your Envy

6 Nov

In my very first post to Good Evening Vietnam I solemnly promised not to turn this place into “a journal of my thoughts, an ill-informed political diatribe,  or a poor excuse for a travel review”. In retrospect, I seem to have failed miserably in keeping this vow (although I’ll protest in my defence that my ill-informed diatribes were rarely, if ever, political).

Accepting this wholesale failure, I’ve decided to use one of my last posts from Hanoi as a sneaky opportunity for a blatant exercise in showing off the wonders of Vietnam as I have experienced them over the last six months. I figure that most people’s photo blogs and facebook albums are primarily designed to provoke jealousy in their friends and family and I might as well be up front about it.

So, if I haven’t offended everyone who might be reading, here we go:
