Meanwhile, I've posted all of my Vietnam pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/kimigary/, and I'm posting a small selection of them here on Blogger, below.
I am in Tokyo, resting up and recovering from a cold. Itsumi made me chicken soup (so sweet of her, especially since it's an American custom, not Japanese!) and is making sure I stay warm and rest. It's good to be in one place rather than traveling.
Next week, I will use my Japan Rail Pass to take a trip in Japan to Hiroshima, Kyoto and Osaka. Itsumi has made all the reservations, and will join me for part of the trip.

I bicycled all around this area.
