Nomadic Notes
A weekly newsletter of great travel reads and news by James Clark from Nomadic Notes.

Where I'm At
Hello from hunkered-down Ho Chi Minh City. Things are gradually grinding to a halt here with more shops and restaurants closing this week. There is still traffic about with people going to their work, but it feels like the Tet holiday when everyone leaves the city. I’m staying in my room for most of the time, with walks to get supplies. So far there is no curfew yet, but I expect there will be eventually.
On the work front I’ve been working on other sites that have a better chance of making money (ie non-travel sites) so no new blog posts this week. It’s hard to write about travel, but on the other hand it’s nice to have some inspiration for when this is over.
