Viva Danang!

Visiting Viet Nam

With Heidi Marchetti

March 2000

It's not every day that NOT gets invited to travel overseas. Especially Asia. But that was the case when his friend Heidi was going to spend time in Viet Nam. All that NOT knew about the country came from watching too many movies or some old documentaries on the History Channel. Now he could see it for himself.

The country was warm. It was humid. And it was laid back. 

NOT took time to center his mind in the beauty of the countryside, and to get in touch with his inner hatchling at a Zen Buddhist Temple.

And while contemplating the sound of one hand clapping, he began to wonder if water falls in the hillside, but there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound. So he visited the Datanla Waterfall in Dalat, and found out that it makes a lot of noise, at least when there is a duck to hear it.
