Soar through the sky and absorb tranquility in Dalat Vietnam

Arriving at the gondola, is this for real?

    I’m entranced by the architecture (maybe a missed calling?) and those gardens put my yard to shame. Puts Vietnam in another light as someone growing up during that war that divided our country.

      I’m so glad I could share it with you. Vietnam works hard to accommmodate returning American Vietnam Vets, you just tell them you are one and you get special treatment. Vets go back a lot to visit where they were and lost friends during those awful time and the Vietnamese have preserved these places, provide tours, and are very welcoming. There’s a lot of healing and a lot of pride.
