PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

HA NOI – DAY 11 – TO THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF VIETNAM – TOURIST OFFICE – AN OPEN LETTER

RW LOGO
 
ITS RUDE TO STARE – BUT THE VIET’S DO IT ALL THE TIME
 
The Radical
15th Nov 2018
 
AT ANYONE DIFFERENT TO THEMSELVES –
 
 BUT THE VIETS DO IT TO FOREIGNERS AND I MEAN IN HA NOI NOT THE RURAL VILLAGES
 
I SMILE BACK OR SOMETIMES MAKE THE SIGN THAT I AM TAKING A PHOTO OF THEM, WHICH MAKES THEM LOOK AWAY
 
IT’S IGNORANT TO DRIVE UP BEHIND SOMEONE WALKING IN THE

 
GUTTER, BECAUSE THE PAVEMENTS ARE BLOCKED BY RUBBISH,

 
BIKES, CARS AND FOOD STALLS, THEN HOOT LOUDLY AND

 
CONTINUOUSLY ON A HORN AS THOUGH YOU WANTED THAT

 
PEDESTRIAN TO GET OUT OF YOUR WAY – CARS AND BIKES DO IT.

 
IT’S A DIRTY HABIT TO SPIT IN THE STREET TOO

 
ITS DISCOURTEOUS and BAD MANNERS TO PUSH IN FRONT OF

 
SOMEONE IN A QUEUE OR BEING SERVED IN A SHOP. 
 

OF COURSE THE SHOP ASSISTANT SHOULD TELL 
 
THEM TO WAIT BUT THEY ARE AS BAD AND TRY TO SERVE

 

TWO CUSTOMERS AT THE SAME TIME
 
 BUT THE VIETS DO IT TO FOREIGNERS (AND OTHER VIETS)
 
AND IF YOU CAN’T TREAT VISITORS WITH A MODICUM OF RESPECT –

 
AS VIETS SELDOM DO,
 

THEN DON’T INVITE THEM.
 
COURTESY COSTS NOTHING – BUT VIETS THINK IT DOES 
 
SAY GOOD MORNING TO A VIET AND YOU WILL AS LIKELY AS NOT BE

IGNORED.

THAT IS NOT THE SAME WITH SCHOOL CHILDREN.
ONE LOCAL SHOP WAS PLAYING LOUD RAP MUSIC DAY

AND NIGHT. I ASKED OUR HOST TO DEAL WITH IT

BUT SHE DECLINED, SO I DID.

I MADE HIM AN OFFER HE COULDN’T REFUSE.

NOW WE HAVE PEACE IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

 
DON’T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
 
READ THE BLOGS ON THE NET.
 
THE RADICAL AND RENE ARE NOT BACKPACKERS

 
WHO GET SHORT CHANGED BECAUSE THE 

 

VIETS KNOW THEY TRAVEL ON A BUDGET.
 
AND IT IS NOT BRITISH ARROGANCE
 
NOT ALL VIETS ARE THE SAME
 
WE CAME HERE HOPING TO HAVE A “SOCIALIST” HOLIDAY
LEARN SOME OF THE LANGUAGE WHEN OUT OF NECESSITY
 
WANTED TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES OF LIFE 
 
NO ! WE BRITISH DID NOT INVADE VIETNAM
 
WE HELPED RESCUE THEM FROM THE JAPS
 
UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS
ALL FOREIGNERS ARE NOT EXPOITING CAPITALISTS
 
MY HOPES WERE TO :-
 
LET CHILDREN ASK ME QUESTIONS
 
TALK POLITICS 


MEET THE PEOPLE

 
HAVE A GOOD HOLIDAY —

 
BUT I KEPT MYSELF TO MYSELF

 
MOST OF THE TIME
 

AS  WE AM NOT COMING BACK HERE IN A HURRY
 
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
———————————————————————-
UP AT THE CRACK OF DAWN
THE LONG MARCH COMPLETELY ROUND TRUC BACH 
THE LITTLE LAKE NEXT TO HO TAY.
TRAFFIC STILL HORRENDOUS AT 06.30 
PASSED TRAN QUOC TEMPLE and the EXCUSE THAT IS THE AMERICAN MEMORIAL
WHICH I DID NOT CROSS THE ROAD TO BOTHER PHOTOGRAPHING
WE SAW OUR FIRST VEHICLE ACCIDENT 
A CAR KNOCKED A MOTOR BIKE RIDER OFF HIS BIKE WHICH WAS LADEN 
WITH A 4ft WIDE BOX ON THE BACK SEAT.
NO POLICE – JUST EXCHANGE OF NAMES ETC AND MAYBE CASH
NO MAJOR INJURY AS THE BIKE RIDER WALKED HIS BIKE TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD>
LOVELY SEATING AND LOTS OF PENSIONERS TAKING THE AIR 
HOME TO BREAFAST AND SLEPT UNTIL 12 NOON 
THEN TO THE MARKET.
WHERE THE STALL HOLDERS WERE BEDDING DOWN FOR A SIESTA.
ONLY MAD DOGS AND ENGLISHMEN GO OUT IN THE MIDDAY SUN
HOME FOR SOUP AND THEN MORE SHOPPING
WE ARE HERE FOR 14 DAYS – FLY OUT AT 20.00hrs SUNDAY
ARRIVE UK 0620 MONDAY – IMSHALLAH – WE FLY OVER THE THE NEAR EAST & MIDDLE EAST
SO THIS IS MY LAST HA HA NOI 
SHOW ME THE WAY TO GO HOME …….
 
YOU DO KNOW WHAT VIETNAM MEANS ? 
 
MEN OF THE VIET TRIBE –

 
SEXIST TO THEIR LAST AND IT SHOWS
