I've been thinking about Vietnam for a few minutes, and I even managed to find a picture of the view from my old office there. It's curious to think that I've not been there for over a year.
Vietnam is up there with India as one of my favourite countries to visit - despite, or because of the immense contrasts involved. Both are countries that you can believe in, in some sense. Countries with a sense of purpose, that know that they are alive.
