Well.... I knew it was going to happen sooner or later..... the Americanization of Vietnam. My first hint was when my Agent/Webmaster/Attorney Will
Snyder told me a few months ago that we could get a Vietnam Web Address..... which would be PERFECT for Radio First Termer.
With little paperwork to fill out and two hundred dollars (US)..... we were in business. Ever since we completed the deal, I now receive ANY and
EVERYTHING in Vietnamese. It really taxes my brain because my limited use of the Vietnamese language was in negotiation with whores and barmaids
Well, today I get this shortcut in English.
So I think... wow... maybe they are going to start promoting in English. WRONG! So, I click on... and the first thing I see is a Helicopter. I freaked
for a second until I realized it was one of those miniatures.
I think you will get a kick out of what things cost in Vietnam. They have some things listed in US Dollars and some in VND Vietnamese DONGS. One item
has been reduced from $17,000,000.00 (17 Million VND) to $14,000,000.00 (14 Million VND).
Anyway... have fun figuring out stuff. Let me know what you thought was the most outrageous.
NOTE: I Changed The Copy To REFLECT "DONGS". Their currency is now called VND (Vietnamese Dollars). They were going to call it VD, but that
didn't get approved!
