Southeast Asia, Here I Come!
6 weeks in Shanghai sipping on corn juice (YUM!) and now it's time to trek once more! This time it's Southeast Asia, and I'm cruising with this guy (also named Kyle, shockingly enough):
We're hitting the "rails" tomorrow en route to Hangzhou, where we'll catch a flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. From there it's on to the capital of Laos - Vientiane. Then we'll head south down the Mekong River through Pakse, Champasak and Four Thousand Dolphins, a collection of islands at the mouth of the Mekong River Delta.
That's all going to take about 10 days before we cross overland into Cambodia to see Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and Cambodia's capital, Phnom Phem Then it's overland into Vietnam, where we're disappearing on Phu Coq Island, one of the most remote places on the planet. We're finishing with a few days in Saigon and a few days in Hanoi. Kyle Long heads back to the US of A and I finish my trip in Beijing, hopefully camping on the Great Wall with Stacy, who is also a rock star.
So, updates whenever I have internet access! Maybe every day, maybe every few days. Only Southeast Asia knows. Hurray for falling off the map!
