I still can’t download photos from my camera, arg. But investigating the problem with Chromebook experts helped me learn a little more about Vietnam. Turns out there is nothing wrong with my laptop. The photos won’t download because I am using an online application that the Vietnam government considers social media and those kinds of sites are blocked here.
I have had the very good fortune to have gotten this far without getting sick (except for heat rash), losing anything (except a lot of sweat) or destroying anything (except a couple of pairs of sandals and a few illusions). But it would not be life if something didn’t go south.
