You do get around . . . . . . .

Last you were on my radar I was lurking your trip south and back which was excellent BTW . . . . . . . .

I too live in Seattle right next door to Liittle Saigon; Excellent Pho, and Vietnamese restaurants abound here . . . . . .

Also, would like to travel to Vietnam . . . . . . Uhmmm, how would you compare the cost of accommodations between Vietnam and a country of your choice in Central/South America, of relative value? ? ?

Do you have hassles getting a "fair" rate for accomidations in Vietnam ? ? ?

Well, I'm dating myself, but back in the late 80's & early 90's(when I lived in SE Asia) I heard first hand accounts of price gouging or the "skin tax" that (white) foreigners paid for their stay in Vietnam - So I never visited . . . . .

Haven't researched it, and not sure what the current situation is . . . . . . .



Thanks.
