Am I the only one that is curious about what gear was packed for the trip??

I'll bet you it wasn't Fuji.

Why do I get the impression that there are people posting in this thread that work for/with Fuji in some capacity or other?!!

mvinson1022 - If you are going to do Hanoi - Halong Bay - Hue - Hoi An - Saigon - Siem Reap - Phuket, try not to miss Sapa in Vietnam. It is incredibly picturesque. Google it if you are not sure.

Not me. Just a poor, old college professor who can't carry the weight any more. I shot Leica film for years and this is just closing the loop.

We thought long and hard about Sapa. Ultimately decided it was too cold and didn't want to carry the extra clothes for just a few days up there.

If it makes you feel better, I am taking my G9 as my backup. No long lenses yet for the Fuji. I am carrying my old Leica 90mm tele-elmarit with an adapter (135mm effective focal length), but very tricky to focus it manually, especially for street shooting.

My wife, 2 year old, and I have lived over in Luang Prabang for a few years. We actually just came back to the states a few days ago to spend some time with family. You'll have a great time. Laos is an incredible place.

I notice the speedlite is bent (i.e. not upright) in the camera bag ... is that ok to transport like that? I ask coz about 2 years ago the technician at the Canon store here told me that it is not supposed to be stored/transported that way and that it should always be transported in the upright position ... is that true? has any of you been transporting your lens that way (as shown in the below pic)? and has it caused any problems to the flash head joints etc?
