What will be published here will be not a report, not a diary, not a set of documents.

Instead, it will be a set of experiences, sensations, impressions that I developed through what I saw and the people I met in this beautiful country of South-East Asia. A country that is stuck in between a past that reveals itself in the omnipresence of the sickle-and-hammer flags and Ho Chi Minh’s images, and a future made of Burger Kings, Nike shoes, skyscrapers and motorcycles produced by multinational companies that now have their production plants in Vietnam.

Yes, it is closer to a travel journal, and as travel journal it will be published here:

one day of the trip per time, on Thursdays.

 

Episodes:

1 – Hanoi, the capital city

2 – Halong Bay: rice & souvenirs

3 – Ho Lua & Tam Coc – the deep Vietnam

4 – Hoi An: American Nightmare & American Dream

5 – My Son & Da Nang: the old & the new

6 – Saigon & Mekong: money doesn’t stink… fish does

from Venice, Italy ..but now in Rayong, Thailand
