Photojournalist Russ Furnas will discuss and show slides of his 2014 trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Enjoy Vietnamese style coconut tea while Furnas describes Ho Chi Minh City's (Saigon) explosively colorful China Town, opium refineries turned French restaurants and antique alley's lively inexpensive open air garden restaurants. Flower markets and temples transition to the lush Mae Kong Delta, where he cruised the backwaters aboard a bamboo sampan. The journey will conclude with Cambodia’s gilded fairy tale palaces, an exotic culture and ancient jungle-choked World Heritage stone temples
