Another year over, and a new one just begun

It has been far too long since our last post and for that we apologize. We are now recovering from the week that was Christmas and New Years. We had as much fun as was possible considering the vast distances between us and our friends and family. R&R Tavern was our home away from home this holiday season. We enjoyed a wonderful turkey dinner on Christmas day with co-workers from Oxford English UK. Huong outdid herself with a fantastic meal that made us, if only for a short time, feel as though we were home enjoying a turkey dinner with all of the fixings. Next was NYE where we also celebrated the coming of the new year with friends at the bar. It was a good way to ring in the new year so far from home. Thanks again, to Jay and Huong for their efforts this holiday season. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years and we miss you all and were thinking of you over the holidays. I will do my best to not let so much time pass between posts.
Bring on the new year and year number four for the Merlins rocking South East Asia.
Ciao for now,
-E

I'm Waiting for the next installment. We're back at work now so this is the only way we can get our dose of travel besides selling it. I'd love to see a series. Something along the lines of "A Vitnanam Dirary". Ten compelling, hard questions to local Vietnamese. 60 minutes or doco style. An interview with the local tyre repairer or the local fruit lady. Maybe a struggling student of the newly Vietnames rich. 10 questions maybe something like "what do you think of Western influence?" or "What do you think of the Southern Vietnamese?", "What's it like dating in Vietnam" or so on and so one. Throw out a different side of Vietnam... one that I wish I did and would love to know the answers to. You could call it "Dirty Vietnam" or something like that.
