About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Arrival in Hanoi

I'm proud to report I DID NOT exclaim "Good morning Vietnam!" Didn't even think of it. However at least half our group did.
To paraphrase Von Clauszewitz, "War is economics by other means."
Kind of surprised they have a drink called a B52 here. You know, what with the late unpleasantness and all...
Hanoi night market. Makes Bangkok look like a sleepy backwater village.
