Getting about a bit

Vietnam is long and thin. Longer and thinner than I thought. And it takes a long time to get halfway down. This is mostly what today is about, as well as debates on line with other Hong Kong adoptees about the accuracy of the Call The Midwife 2018 Christmas special whose storyline feature HK adoptees being brought to the UK in the early 60s as part of the United Nations International Year of the Refugee. I haven’t seen it yet though, so not sure my contributions are worth it

I’m on a very bumpy coach, balancing my mobile phone on my left knee to type this blog. Bluetooth keyboard on right knee. Hardest thing ever, says Mr P who gets sick just reading whilst in a moving vehicle of any sort. Today we’ve already been on a car ferry. A bus, a pick up truck. Next a sleeper train. All good for Mr P’s work, as a transport designer. Which I think is the hardest thing ever, judging by the Christmas card he sent out from Transport Design International, his company, this year. They are designing the train of the future. Now that’s what I call hard!

So in the spirit of coupled up traveling, here’s a Christmas Greeting from Martin, just sneaking into my blog.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Looking for my long lost family in Hong Kong And previously.... Fell in love with coastal living 5 years ago. And moved to stunning St Ives. A place to create and grow and flourish. Got me a home and a job. And never looked back. Everyone talks and writes about the famous dead people of St Ives. Virginia and Alfred and Ben and Barbara and Peter and Wilhelmina. Well I thought I’d introduce you to some very nice folk, and they’re all very much alive and make St Ives a much the better town for it.
