You should start a Saigon chapter of Bogleheads. Then I can join it, and convince my wife I must fly there to the annual meeting in Jan. It's mighty cold here in Kansas. And dry to.
I'm amazed at the wealth of Knowledge others gather, and share over a lifetime of learning. The mind is truly unique. It's nice when we use it!

It is a 'cold' 27 celsius here, with local folks wearing jackets and sweaters. Actually, it is actually windy at night on motorbikes. About the local environment, the VN stock market is not doing much and now, the devalued currency is not helping.

Rusty, so you are now a member of the saigon chapter. I will sign an invitation to you any time (to show your (boss) wife :-)

I'm a Kansas girl (Hi, Rusty!) currently calling Taipei home, and will be in Hanoi for Tet if you want to head north :)

Sadly will not be making it to Saigon this trip...
20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did... throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

I'm in Rio right now, but I will be there in Saigon for the first half of February 2011. Pm me if you have any meetup schedule around the Tet occasion.

Tyrobi, sure we can have a meetup for a chat/drink.

Sailorette, for Tet, I am in saigon, probably no plan for Hanoi. If anything, maybe plan for the island of Phu Quoc, way in the south :-)

Anyone else who drops by saigon, we can meet for coffee and I can give you some local info (if I am in town).
