Samplings from Southeast Asia

Traveling for a month in Southeast Asia, visiting Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, was the result of a desire to visit omy younger son, who is working as an epidemiologist in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Americans, for being such a monolingual culture, are truly fortunate when traveling. So many citizens of other countries, even those not well–educated, are learning English. In addition, when young travelers from Denmark, France, South Africa and Japan want to talk with each other, they find English to be the common language.

The world is delightfully fascinating.
