Dateline: Bangkok - Saturday Night of Songkran Festival
Let's start with the ugliest of pertinent facts: Two nights ago I was assaulted, by a mosquito or similar insect. I am pretty sure it happened while I was sipping delicious rum-and-cokes and observing the playful Songkran waterfights, at a makeshift bar on a pleasant side street near Khao San Road. Being a salty veteran of the Great Texas Bug Wars, I was prepared for this battle, suitably armored in my long pants and long socks, despite the heat. But two factors were working against me:

A hot fog blew into Đà Nẵng last night with the USS Carl Vinson. Would it change anything?
Background: Only 48 hours before, on Saturday night at 9PM, The Trump Bar near Mỹ Khê beach was deserted,
population enjoying blinky lights: zero
besides 3 staff and one eager photographer,
on assignment for Win Gold winners club.
Naturally, the question before us now is:
Will this hot fog carry our brave seamen sailors out tonight (Tuesday)
to Mỹ Khê social pinnacle, the Trump Bar of Đà Nẵng? Address: Lô 19-20 Đỗ Bá, Mỹ An, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng
Lordy, what if these sailors even want to help us Win Gold Now, in a nautical way?
Idea: They could help us prepare for the Golden Victory Piece Cruz , scheduled to arrive
Đà Nẵng on Monday, November 5, 2018. Final Awards ceremony is Tues Nov 6 at Trump Bar, exactly8 lucky months from tonight.
