I've been in Vietnam for a week and a half and have finally found wifi. It's in the lobby of the hotel I'm staying at in Ha Long Bay. It is not in my air conditioned hotel room. The lobby is hot, and they don't refrigerate their beer so the beer is also hot. I am dripping in sweat drinking a warm beer, and I'm happy to have internet. (A few minutes later I opened the window and let the cool breeze in, eliminating my sweat problem... duh.)
Ha Long Bay is gorgeous. I would absolutely love to take off across it on a jet ski and see all the tiny coves hidden in the cliffs on the opposite shore. My hotel room looks out across the bay from the non-interesting side, so my view is pretty good.
I'll write more info about my travels from today later, right now I'm going to enjoy this warm beer as best as I can and chat with my brother.
