Recently I have become obsessed with Ken Tanaka and his youtube video posts. He is from Shimane Prefecture in Japan and is adopted. He has come back to the United States to find his real parents. Please help him find them. Perhaps you will be the one to find John and Linda Smith (his bio-parents). Enjoy the video. Please leave any comments below. Comments are good karma and you will be richly rewarded in a future life.
Oriental medicine says nausea is due to “reverse stomach Qi”. Qi means something akin to energy, so the energy of the stomach is going in reverse… up instead of down!
Here’s a couple quick and effective Oriental remedies to stop nausea, whether from traveling pregnancy, chemotherapy or pretty much any other cause. These don’t have the side effects of nausea medications, and their effectiveness is backed up by plenty of research.
Sinh in Saigon By Sean Landon
While we here at the AT prefer to do Asia alone or in pairs, and we do not usually recommend local tours, we did have a rather good experience with a tour company in Saigon. After spending about a month in Thailand, we grabbed a flight from Bangkok to Saigon. When you’re in Bangkok, we suggest you check out the Khao San road area for some good deals on trips to Vietnam. There are several competing travel companies all wanting your Thai Baht. Upon arriving at the airport in Saigon, we were greeted by a bus plastered with signs for Pepsi-cola. Once we got out of the airport, we weren’t really sure which way to go. So we grabbed a van with about 10 other backpackers and headed to Pham Ngu Lao St. in district 1. This is an area with lots of cheap hotels and restaurants. A lot of the hotels in the area are homes that have been remodeled. We grabbed a room at Hotel TiTi. Every time we left the hotel we ended up going through the family’s living room! Hotel TiTi’s prices ranged from about US$8.00 to US$12.00 per day and it’s very clean. We recommend it.
