Subject: NY Times article: Vietnam
Hi Jim,

Thanks for mentioning the NY Times article on Southwest Airlines. It seems this past Sunday's Times had interesting travel-related articles beyond the travel section; in the news section there's an article about increasing tourist interest in Vietnam:

It's slow going writing my report on my trip to Asia, but I'll preview it by saying that for me it was a mistake to be based in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City; it was unpleasant to walk around and be pestered in various ways, and such a challenge to cross the streets. It's still a fascinating country, though.
