Getting ready

I leave for Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in exactly five weeks and still have a lot to do.

Here’s a quick list:

1. Secure a three month, multiple entry visa from the Vietnamese embassy. I tried calling them and I think it costs $150 dollars but they no speak English.

2. Purchase traveler’s insurance.

3. Contact my cousin in Vietnam and try to find a place to stay. And a motorcycle to drive. I don’t know how to drive a motorcycle. This should be fun.

4. Locate all the good night clubs, the classy escort services, and the cheapest beer in the city. Just kidding.

5. Continue background research onHIV/AIDS in Vietnam.

Lots of asian drivers. Watch out.
