BY JEEP THROUGH THAILAND, CAMBODJA AND VIETNAM


I left Bangkok early on November 10, 1956.
Notice the boxes I installed in the back of the jeep, and Charles' hat which came along in his stead


Although Charles had to abandon our planned tour at the last minute, I went on by myself.
(In retrospect, this was about the only "window of time" in which a solitary guy in a jeep could have traveled through Vietnam, in the aftermath of the Dien Bien Phu loss by the French and the "take-over" of the Vietnam War by the United States of America.)

Strategic roads are being improved ...



This is near Saraburi - still in Thailand - with peaceful monks and unbelievably effective "public transportation" ....

... if you consider the age of the vehicle and the ratio of passengers to available seating.
