October 22, 2010 - Tough Weather and Even tougher protocols

By: Arturo Valdez

5:10 PM - We are closely monitoring the weather and observed that Typhoon Megi/Juan is moving very slow as it moves northward thus still kicking on its wake the kind of rainclouds, strong winds and rough seas in our area. We wanted to depart already tomorrow Oct 23 but with this kind of sea condition, it is gonna be rough again for the Balangays. Again, we have to wait.

Meanwhile, another depression is spotted near the Philippines and that leaves us a very limited window to sneak out of its dangerous coverage.

6:52 PM - Weather updates are not very encouraging. While the typhoon is going up and even moving northeast, the weather condition in our present location is not improving, either. White clouds cover our area all over and we don't know when this will clear up.


Meanwhile, Dr. Ted and Pastour's feedback from Ho Chi Minh is this: going to the city through the Mekong River is also getting tough with so much protocols and sky-high costs for us. The
weather and man-bureaucracy seem to be throwing all the obstacles for our Vietnam journey.


This is one of the satellite maps showing the white clouds hovering over
Sihanoukville up to the tip of the Vietnam peninsula and the incoming
weather disturbance "Katring". Let's hope it will not develop into a
"perfect storm" interacting with Megi.
