Visa Status

7/19/2018

Visa arrived today!  Flying out Tues the 24th. Arriving 30hrs later, mid-day in Ha Noi (only two 4 hour layovers)...

Did I mention I'll be arriving smack dab in the middle of monsoon season in Ha Noi?  Better buy a poncho and stay out of the street!

Visa approval has been granted! I have sent my paperwork to the Vietnamese Embassy and now I am waiting to receive my visa. My visa should arrive Friday or Saturday! Once it's in hand I will buy my plane ticket! Hope to leave for Hanoi on July 24, 2018. Yay!!

Waiting for visa approval from Vietnamese Ministry of Security

Having severe guitar withdrawal...had to put "Lester" in storage for the year!

For those of you who know me, you know how traumatic this is...For those of you who don't know me...I have a two-hour-a-day habit.

Can you guess what I'll be looking to buy in a pawn shop in Ha Noi?

How 'bout some traffic in Ha Noi...

Some of my thoughts for your consideration...
