Well, you may realize that I have left Vietnam, and am now in Bali. It only took us about 24 hours of travel time to make the trip, and Jim figured it might have been faster to go home and fly from there to Bali! But once we arrived, all was good again, and we were ready for a new adventure. And Bali is a new adventure, for sure! The first thing that we noticed, as we arrived in the evening, were these little offerings everywhere. I was charmed by them, as I continue to be, even after seeing them everywhere! The Balinese bring fresh ones out in the morning, and during the day, and it can be quite time consuming to place them around, as witnessed by the woman who brings them to our hotel each morning.
