Americans and the Other


No, this is not a Vietnam-related post, at least not directly.  Indirectly, however, there is a Vietnam connection.  I was invited to speak to a group of US higher education colleagues about Vietnam in early February 2010 at a seminar in Washington, D.C.  During my presentation, the snow began falling right on schedule, and kept falling throughout that day and into the next in what became one of the worst snowstorms in local history.   The photo, taken near my hotel, was the inspiration for a short essay entitled Americans and the Other (PDF) that appeared in the September/October 2010 issue of International Educator magazine.

  1. This absolutely infuriates me. It reminds me of the sex tourism ads for Thailand. I may just contact the company. Thanks for posting this, Mark.
