I've finally posted pictures from my trip to Vietnam.  I had an amazing time!  The food was fresh and interesting, the people were friendly, Hanoi was bustling, and the landscape was breathtaking!  I took more pictures than many of you will have the patience for, so I've broken up this installment into the "best of the best" -- a 16 picture overview, and a more comprehensive set of 68 images:

The landscape of Vietnam's mountains is unlike any other I've seen before. Every few corners you have a 180+ degree view of the mountains and valleys, always covered with lush, vibrant  green vegetation. In addition to the natural beauty, we would see  people working the fields by hand or with water buffalo, children   riding bicycles or walking to school, traditional thatched-roof   houses, terraced rice paddies, women in traditional clothing, the  list goes on.People in the countryside seemed very friendly, but   sometimes intimidated by our group of 6 bikers.  The main road that  we were on was only paved in the past year, so I don't think that  they have had much contact with foreigners.
