What a difference 74F (23C) makes …

The temperature today is about 70F (21C) warmer than it was on The Great Wall in China just three days ago. Today the students are enjoying the pool, eating outside and sunbathing.  Only a few days ago they were huddled around heaters, buying panda hats, not worrying much about what they looked like.  Needless to say, there are some very happy students on board MV Explorer.

The ship is alive with people planning their trips to Vietnam.  We arrive in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in two days, so tomorrow we will provide an update our plans for Vietnam and Cambodia.
