Our visit to Vietnam and Cambodia squeezed a lifetime into a month. Rural, urban, and even underground experiences were mashed together. There was order, and there was chaos. A romantic Indochine past against the undertone of a war we had experienced through television in the 1960’s and 70’s. All the bombs that were dropped made no sense, and the landscape ignored what they had done. Scooters never stopped and had no boundaries. Commerce and energy were in the air always. We never once were we treated poorly by anyone. Ignored by some, maybe. Amazed for being Americans by others.

These are a few images and videos that helped me make sense of what we experienced.
