From Ho Chi Minh City….

It’s Sunday night at 11:06 PM and I’m in the airport in Ho Chi Minh City waiting for a flight to London. I’m going to England to attend my nephew’s wedding. It’s a 45-minute flight from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City (the former Saigon) but I had a seven-hour layover before getting the flight to London’s Heathrow. It wasn’t too bad although I am disappointed I didn’t get a chance to post a full page of photos here from this first part of the trip.

This is the Immigration Department office near the airport in Phnom Penh. I spent a couple hours there on Friday trying to get one of our St. Vincent de Paul Society clients out of the country with a new visa. It’s a long and complicated mess he’s got himself into.
