Mekong Update

Dr. Domingo is spending his sabbatical studying and teaching about water privatization in Malaysia. He recently sent this photograph following a lecture he gave on the subject in the geography department at the University of Malaya.
As those who know Dr. Domingo will expect, he has not been spending all of his time in conference rooms! The series of photos below, in fact, were taken during a four-day excursion in Vietnam's Mekong Delta, a side trip he took "while in the neighborhood." These photos bear out his claim that the Mekong is a "geographer's delight!" He also explored Ho Chi Min City (Saigon) -- describing it as an incredible place of very high energy where he spent many hours on the back of a motorbike taxi (Xe Om).

Click any of the photos below to enlarge; we look forward to hearing the stories behind them when Dr. Domingo returns!
