A quick update from Betsy Jensen:

So far so good!  I’m writing this from somewhere over Russia, halfway to Tokyo. We are fortunate to have an empty plane. Most of us have open seats around us.  A special treat on a 13+ hour flight.  After Tokyo, a little 5.5 hour hop to Hanoi.  I hope the hotel has comfortable beds because we will need a good night’s sleep.

A quick look at the plane before boarding. 


The members of MARL Class VIII will be departing for Vietnam on Friday, February 19. We hope to keep you updated daily through this blog. Please check back later for pictures and stories of our Vietnam adventure.
