During my travels in the Philippines, Clay and I made 2 friends from Germany in Manila. Jakob and Marius hit me up when they came to San Francisco in February during Super Bowl Weekend. Since San Francisco was hosting the Superbowl, a lot of accommodations were booked and prices inflated. I offered them my couch … More Friends visit from Germany!

The next stop was Hue… The Citadel The Minh Mang Tomb Update: I’m really behind on posts as usual. I just finished north Thailand and will be flying to Myanmar (Burma) tomorrow.
