Greetings to old hacks from Saigon Sunday 12th.
Deanna and Don North arrived here early Saturday after an 18 hour flight from Washington over the north pole. Spent the day trying to find old landmarks to prove this was really Saigon or Ho City. Jet lag best treatment was relaxing at Caravelle pool and sauna drinking “Miss Saigon” cocktails. Chose to stay a couple of days at Caravelle for old times sake as it was where our ABC News office was located during the war. In the evening we went to where our ABC office was in the corner office third floor and found the elegant “Reflections” an Asian gourmet restaurant, terrific food and wine selections. Shot out the window toward Opera house and Continental, newly constructed Eden building and new construction in front of Opera house. Then posed for shots with restaurant manager and head waitress.
