The American Southwest - from California to Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah
Wilfredo R. Valenzuela
Mon 4th July 2016


A few years ago, I wrote an MN Travelogue about our tour of the American West, with Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming as our farthest destination.  This year, we took a tour of the American Southwest, a region of the United States which roughly covers southeastern California, the southern tip of Nevada, the entire state of Arizona, western New Mexico, southwestern Colorado, and southern Utah.  The predominantly desert area has colorful landscape and breathtaking views.  We went on our road tour in early June, before it got unbearably hot in some parts.

VIETNAM-“Chaotic” experience in Hanoi’s traffic and cruising pristine Ha Long Bay

My brother Danny’s wife Cindy planned and arranged our first trip to Northern Vietnam months in advance.  Danny, Cindy, my sisters Chi and Quiding, Quiding’s husband Eddie, and I took an early morning flight from Manila to Hanoi via Singapore.  It was dark by the time we set out from Noi Bai International Airport to our lodging at Hanoi’s French Quarter. 
The modern airport was not very busy. And neither was the highway leading out of the airport.  The smooth highway traffic near the airport belied the heavy traffic we encountered as soon as we entered Hanoi.
