Vietnamese Shasta

As some of you know, for the past two summers I have rented a houseboat on Lake Shasta, maintaining a long standing tradition of some Beavers. This summer I hope to make an appearance on the boat, even though I get back from Hong Kong several days before and classes start at Berkeley several days after. My desire to houseboat was reinvigorated today when John and I went on Mama Linh's Island Tour, off the coast of Nha Trang. We snorkeled, we drank bad wine while floating in inner tubes, we fruit partied, we drank beers, and we watched several fellow boaters from around the world pulled "on stage" for a post-lunch "song and dance entertainment programme." Fortunately for us, the guides considered United States and Canada "same same as" England. Somehow Australia was not so lucky.

Then Korea was selected, by far the best showing in the dance category:

Spain escaped on account of being "same same as" Italy, but the Italian guy who sang didn't seem to know the "Italian" song they were playing and the video is not worth uploading, but this Chinese girl was a natural:

But who could compete with Miss Viet Nam:

And of course, none of this would have been possible without the band:
