Chive flower tempura - food from my garden

The garden is looking pretty good at the moment - I like my garden overcrowded and full of stuff. The nettles are doing well  - their purpose is to attract butterflies, but it hasn't happened yet. The apple tree has a lot of tiny apples waiting to grow - the June drop should be a big one. Not sure if I have the patience to follow the RHS advice to thin by hand! The pond is looking very full and clear, now that I have…

Random thoughts from abroad

Dalat to Cat Tien national park - The bus was very good and comfortable and the  halfway bus stop was OK too, ant we'd asked the driver to drop us at the post office. He didn't,  but went another 100 yards and dropped us in the 'territory' of the local motor cycle taxi gang. The car  taxi driver would not pick us up until we walked away from the crossroads and paid protection money, and the bike men backed off. They were quite intimidating. Still, £1.67 is a modest extortion demand.…

The archetypal tourist

For the past few days I have played the role of tourist almost to perfection. If it is the tourist's role to be taken in by the myth of the "truly authentic" tourist experience and to improve the lot of the local by the application of cash, then I  have the role down to a T.

The overnight train ride - Vietnam is a very long thin country from North to South, and much of is traversed by "The Reunification Express" running from Saigon to Hanoi. Railways are favourite targets for the…

Back in England the government is still building windmills . . .

Meanwhile, here in Ho Chi Minh City the man in the street continues not to give a Phu Quoc and continues to ride around on his automatic motor bike, past countless neon lights and air conditioned buildings, buses and cars. The number and ubiquity of these bikes causes every visitor to marvel and I am no exception. There are far more of them,surely, than the roads can support, and yet as they weave…

Exotic trip

So, I am in Dubai International.airport on my way to Ho Chi Minh City. I count that as exotic. so far the trip is going quite well. Economy class on Emirates is no more spacious than other airlines, but the entertainment system was phenomenal. It is some time since I've been on a long haul flight and maybe all other airlines are now this good, but I enjoyed watching the take off via cctv, while listening to the sound track of my youth. Four digit channel numbers does suggest a wealth of…
