In northern #Vietnam if you have a sick stomach a simple leaf is the solution. Chew the leaf but do not swallow it. Maybe mint, but no strong aroma.

Touring the new Nhat Tan bridge that crosses the Red River outside of #Hanoi #Vietnam. A little foggy, but a wonderful experience.

Porcupine taxi? Not quite and I am sure the porcupine is not enjoying the trip to wherever it is going in #Vietnam

Small, muddy road and two large trucks sliding off the road make passage difficult for our bus.

Story
Introduction
Hornist Michael Gilliland has literally played around the world. From 1989 until January of 1998 he was a member of the United States Air Force Band Program and performed as Principal Horn with the Concert Band, Woodwind Quintet, Brass Quintet, and Chamber Ensemble. With these ensembles he has toured the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Russian Federation, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Egypt, France, Austria, Greece, and numerous other countries around the world. In attendance at many of these performances were such noted individuals as President George H. W. Bush, President William J. Clinton, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, The King and Queen of the Netherlands, President Mikial Gorbachov, President Boris Yeltsin, and numerous Ambassadors and Heads of State.

In 1998 Michael was ready for a less traveling and a more stationary life. He accepted a position with the faculty of Missouri Southern State University as Adjunct Professor of Horn. That summer he also won his position as Principal Horn with the Fort Smith Symphony in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Michael has also performed with the Springfield (MO) Symphony, Springfield (MO) Regional Opera, Northwest Arkansas Symphony, Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Philharmonic, and the St. Louis Symphony, as well as a performer at several regional and international workshops of the International Horn Society. Michael has also performed with such artists as The Moody Blues, Mannheim Steamroller, Kevin Eubanks and The Tonight Show Band.

Michael has performed on 13 CD’s of both military and civilian performing groups, including the critically acclaimed CD Music of William Grant Still on the Naxos Label. The international release of this recording is the first in a series of music by the American composer William Grant Still.

Outside of music Michael has recently discovered the adrenaline rush of endurance sports, specifically triathlons. As an avid cyclist Michael wanted to do more than just cruise around the neighborhood on his bicycle, and is now on an incredible journey of health and fitness training for the three events of swimming, cycling, and running in triathlons.

Michael's teachers include Dr. Wayne Harrell, Dr. Bill Scharnberg, Roland Pandolfi (St. Louis Symphony), Jim Wehrman (St. Louis Symphony), Tom Bacon (International Solosit), and Dr. Verle Ormsby.
