We've been heading back to Hanoi, and stopped at an

Ha thinks the shoes are fake. Nonetheless, I now have
a new pair of sneakers to wear while in Vietnam. This

All them served in the war, and I'll tell everyone

We stopped in a village for the night. I'm not sure
where I am right now, but there's an Internet cafe
I should be in Hanoi tomorrow, and able to use my own
