Have a nice time in Vietnam! Alex. by the way, your theme looks so impressed. 🙂 These images are beautiful. I looks like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing 🙂 Funny story about Room to Read. It involves them, Microsoft, graft, unrequited love, and a Peace Corps volunteer arrested for stealing misappropriated donated computers. Perhaps another time. Room to Read are great peoples. A good majority of their programs in Nepal were the result of Peace Corps volunteers’ initiatives. I encourage everyone with even just a little extra cash to throw them their support. A little money can put a lot of books in kids’ hands. very happy matt……… wow! nice theme and nice picture. 🙂 Love your photos, you really capture the colourful nature of Vietnam. LOL @ the “yes that is soup on the back of the motor bike” = SUCH a typical Vietnam-scene! What a great country, one of my best ever trips. Ta. Nice picture Matt. But one thing that made me more curious is about the photo gallery that you used. Is it a plug-in? And also the tagging photo application, what plug-in is it? It’s just the built-in WordPress gallery. Thanks for ur reply Matt Beautiful pictures. Thanks, as always. very lively pics Thanks to Uncle Matt and Uncle Tim!!! … Now the kids know that the dead Uncle Ho (Chi Minh) loves them, too. https://ma.tt/2009/03/vietnam-school/mcm_3787-2/ Worpress rules! Hi Matt, I’m a Vietnamese too, but I live in HaNoi Capital. So I have a question, what do you think a bou Vietnam and Vietnamese? 😀 Thank you for your nice photo nice photo & wp theme 😉 Nice pix, welcome to Vietnam. Hi Matt, I followed your trip daily. Have a nice stay in Vietnam and please add some more text. minhhanh I am a Vietnam veteran spending 16 months throughout the country of Vietnam in 1970. The photos bring back a lot of memories and still looks the same as it did 40 years ago with little progress. The Vietnamese people are some really wonderful people who deserve as much prosperity and freedom as Japan, South Korea, and America has enjoyed. To bad we failed them. Maybe a new generation of young who will look beyond the wisdom of men to find the real truth of mans existence. Yap, Nanny, Vietnam’s counstry side in the photo is look like Vietnam 40 years ago as you remember/ But now the big cities is growing so fast. Have you had an idea that comeback to Vietnam ? Thank you Matt for helping our people. […] saw an entry of Matt Mullenweg at wp-dashboard and ran into Tim Ferriss. Thanks to their donors and Room to Read foundation, more […] SOooooooooo nice!
