Dr. Engel's Trip to Vietnam

In Fall of 1998, I was fortunate enough to travel to Vietnam. I had traveled to many places in the United States, had been to Europe and Mexico and Costa Rica, and so it was time to go to Asia. I chose Vietnam.

Vietnam is a country, not a war -- and it is a country that has a growing tourist infrastructure. It is a developing nation that has much to teach travelers who venture there. I traveled from north to south, visiting Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hue, Danang, Hoi An, Nha Trang, and Ho Chi Minh City and Tay Ninh. Here are some scenes from my trip:
