Ah Todd, now you've got me missing Saturday Market too! That was a weekly trip for us girls back in the 70s....I went the last time I was in town and it is so totally NOT the same vibe. Still fun, though.

I still have the beautiful oak furniture I had built by the guy at Pioneer Furniture, remember him?

His name was Ha, and he also had spring rolls that were pretty good. I spent a lot of time at the Saturday market from the mid 70's until the early 80's, I remember some but not others. Mostly I knew the food people. It certainly does not have the same vibe it did, too sterile compared to the hippy past.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but it brought back a great trip down memory lane all because of Hom Bow.

I am going to go put on my Birkenstocks now.

Georgia -- I'm enjoying your blog very much. I too would have been in awe of the soldiers and looked forward to the rickshaw ride. Can't wait to read more.

I'm glad you're enjoying it Louise! It's fun reliving the trip as I write.

Kate, you're absolutely right. It is simply unbelievable when you consider everything involved. It was my second favorite experience of the trip, after the day we were invited into a local Chinese home.

I was wondering the same thing.... It's been a wonderful read and I'm going to miss it when the trip draws to a close.
