    My China photographic exhibition at a museum in Kunming was VERY well rec'd, TUL! It really gives photographic art a boost here, and of course it was extra exciting for professional art photographers and amateurs alike, they had never seen photos in a museum before, made them proud. Will post some pic from opening night when I get back.

    Then went to Vietnam a week ago, to make new art.

    Got great shots, especially liked HaLong Bay outside HaNoi, the place with a thousand little 'mountain islands' and stayed on a 'junk',

    And also Sapa up north- tons of rice fields covering the misty mountains.

    Vietnam Airlines canceled my flight back to China last night, put me up in a four start hotel w/ dinner, breakfast and lunch with taxis to and from. Not bad, about 4 stars more than the places I usually stay at ;/).

    Fly to Guanzhou, China in three hours, then a 6 hour layover then 18 hour flight to LAX, then two hour drive home.

    FisherOmen is spending a lot of his precious time running around getting my Skeeter up and running again while I'm away (man, this guy looks a lot like Jesus- thanks again Paul), and I get to go to Barrett Lake in two days, life is good, TUL!

    ps, I know it isn't fake, that was a compliment.

    Ft, that one IS fake as heck. But it does capture the feel of the place, which is all I wanted to show- my shots won't be out for a year.
