OK, the cruise part of our trip was successfully concluded, with visits to Da Nang, Vietman (the old city Hoi An was the highlight of our trip so far), Sanya (Hainan Island, China) and back to Hongkong; I’m posting from the airport there. Now we still have a week to go in Frankfurt and Paris. Hopefully broadband there will allow posting some pictures; stay tuned.

Progress reports on the coding front are to follow soon, as well.
