I agree, Francois, but it's what war always produces. Were I to go to Ukrane I probably could reproduce this picture over and over.

Memories. Hasn’t changed much from that scene in fifty years. More electricity, concrete, and farangs of course. Less water in the Mekong thanks to China taking over Laos and Cambodia. Used to eat at a place like that on the way home from work in Rayong.

Hi Frank, Now that I'm 92 I'll never get to see it again, but it was an experience  -- both tours, 1964 and 1973-4. You might like one of the short stories I wrote after I got back the second time: http://www.russ-lewis.com/asia/Shorts/S-monsoonseason.html. It includes a bit of Ubon ratchathani color from the sixties.

Many of us have been “Ben” in SE Asia. Never enough, but sometimes makes a small difference.
When you are around their hard, just surviving, lives one can comprehend a little where “mai pen rai” comes from and why “living in the moment” is a way of life.  A credit to the persistence of the species.

Never say never, Russ. Bali Hai is still there, somewhere.

Washtub
Taegu, Korea, 1953, 69 years ago. I can imagine these two ladies today at a public bath, carrying on the conversation they started here.

Bus Stop.

Taegu, Korea, 1953. The major knows that if he gives the kid anything there'll be at least 15 kids surrounding him within a second or two.

This major seems cruel but you're right, giving once means giving dozens of dozens. It's sad, of course.

At Home in Ubon. Ubon Ratchathani, 1964. I shot this from my back porch.
