are three ways to retrace Claudie's steps as she traveled through
French Indochina: choronologically, geographically, or visually.
Each of these methods will take you to various locations in Claudie's
journey. At each location, you will typically find the French
transcription of the diary, an English translation, appropriate
photographs from the colonial period, photographs from the 2004
trip, and commentary. Remember to scroll to the bottom to view
the commentary. There may be multiple diary entries at a particular
location. Scroll down to view all of the entries.
To follow Claudie CHRONOLOGICALLY, click on the appropriate link

Indochina. You may visit the same location multiple times -- just
