Vietnam & Cambodia Tour
Tuesday Feb 25, 2014

Another great day of photography here in Vietnam ... We are now in Hoi An which is in the central part of the country, and of course it is much warmer than the north.

This morning we sailed down the Perfume River, which offered up many interesting photo opportunities, a Buddha Temple and the Forbidden City. Midafternoon we started our drive to Hoi An. We will be here for two nights photographing and enjoying this region.

Enjoy the images from today, including an unexpected flat tire on our motor coach.

Reflections ... the swimming pool at Pilgrimage Resort in Hue.
