Expect Resistance - Wed, 06/30/2010 - 11:09pm
Today we’re heading for Hanoi and I proposed to James to do the un-lonely planet guide experience. James insists that he is different since he is using a rough guide instead of a lonely planet guide.  I will let him believe whatever makes him feel good ☺. James is not unique among travelers.
