I received the tickets in the mail yesterday -- they're regular printed tickets not e-ticktes. I think most of you are OK with me carrying the tickets to the airport but if you're not and would like to co-ordinate a time when you can pick them up, let me know. Attached to the tickets is the complete itinerary but if you would like a copy of the hotel phone numbers and fax numbers, please let me know.
Also, a small change in plans. Originally, to purchase our visas, we were going to pay
$55 each at the airport in
Transportation to Airport
As for the ride to the airport, the following five people need rides: Aaron, Karen, Kresse, Deisy, and Me. Please let me know immediately if there's been a change. A couple of you offerred suggestions and here's the best option at this point. I checked Expedia and Travelocity and rented a mini-van from National Car Rental for $75.00, which works out to $15.00 per person (half of the price for a one-way ticket on the bus). I reserved the van under my name and I'll pick it up Sunday evening. Thanks to those who were willing to drive us but I think this is the easiest and most efficient way to get to the airport.
So, the five people needing a ride to the airport will meet
at on Monday morning at CSUB in Parking Lot J -- the small one
that is due west of the
Don't forget, each of us needs to bring at least one
passport size photo. You can have them taken at Wallgreens
On another note, since a couple of you have asked, the electricity outlets in Vietnam are 220V and the plugs are A, C and/or G. Cambodia is 230V and the plugs are A, C, and sometimes G. Click here for more information with pictures of the different type of plugs: http://kropla.com/electric2.htm. By the way, I just bought a converter kit at Target for $19.00 -- I think it will cover everything.
Last minute items and suggestions: Earplugs are useful for long plane and bus rides.
