I just want to reiterate that not everyone in Vietnam eats cats or dogs, and I'd probably venture to say that most people (especially in developed cities) do not torture or eat cats.

This March was a BUSY month full of USA travel. From my bachelorette party in Denver to a Southwest US road trip (including California, Vegas, and the Grand Canyon), to a few weekend trips from Palm Desert, I barely had any time to get work done! That said, this month was awesome, and I had a ton of fun moments and memories.
