    Since June is traditionally the month for weddings, my musical contribution tonight is the Wedding Dance by Jacques Press.

    This planet really can be awesome.

  • Ive been to Vietnam a few years ago, and highly recommend a visit; beautiful country. Thailand is of course also great to visit, but many more people have no doubt seen it.

      I was in Vietnam 45 years ago as a G.I., and even under wartime conditions, I was dazzled by the beauty of the countryside, and the beach resort where I was assigned now hosts an international crowd.

      • Worth seeing the north, too. Hanoi, Halong Bay, the mountainous areas, etc. Also interesting, which you probably could not see during the Vietnam War, are the museums in Saigon and elsewhere, which show the extent of the cruelty involved (torture, imprisonment conditions). All this people has suffered a great deal, that’s for sure.

      I’m going to go all racist here (but heck, this is a conservative – translation: racist – site, right?) Isn’t there a bit of a stereotype that people of Oriental descent are generally patient folk? I mean, that’s where Buddhism comes from!

      I’ve also heard that the amount of energy needed to cultivate rice, the staple of the East for millennia, is much greater than that for wheat, the staple of the West. Consequently, people in the West had much more “free” time as a civilization than their counterparts in the East. Time which could be used for writing poetry, inventing things, going to war with each other, etc. In other words, they were busy doing other things than building and maintaining those fancy stepped farms.

        yes stepped terraces a lousy way to farm.. invade some flat land

        Industrial Revolution increased production
