 The benefits of drinking coffee that was eaten and pooped out of a Lewak! Nothing like some good "anti-stick". Also, "damage to DNA"? I thought this was benefits for health... Bali, Indonesia.

 A crossing sign in Hue, Vietnam - are we supposed to identify with the silhouettes of these people? Hmmmmm. If you are not riding a motor scooter, I guess they assume you are a hitch hiker. Hue, Vietnam.

 The War Remnants museum in Ho Chi Minh is a heavy place to be, so it was nice to have some comic relief. I'm glad this artillery caused "numberless" destruction! Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

 You have to weigh the pros-and-cons of this herb. It will relieve poison (I'm hoping this includes alcohol). On the other hand, it might give you diarrhea (note that they spelled "diarrhea" CORRECTLY, despite not being able to spell words like "careful"); however if the poison relief is not enough to make the diarrhea worth it, then perhaps the next benefit will: you will be favored [by your peers]!

 The National Museum of Laos, in the capital, Vientiane, has printed and laminated paper for descriptions of black and white photos. I wonder if they realized that the red lines in MS Word mean that there is a spelling error? Also, a different view on the US. Vientiane, Laos.
