Looking for wide angle, primary lens that fits Nikon body. Nikkor, Tamron, Tokina, Sigma are all ok, as long as it's good glass and FULL FRAME. New or used. Not fish-eye. 20mm or wider. I've been to a few shops on Vong Duc, and they seemed hopeful, but all their lenses were zooms. Any suggestions appreciated!

Need some help locating a bicycle shop that provides a home service. I purchased a bicycle several years ago from a shop in the old quarter (can't remember which 1). I need a service call as the front brakes have ceased working (either because the cable has stretch or snapped). Not really prepared to ride it around with only back brakes. Any help much appreciated.

Hey, I am looking for a job teaching English in Hanoi. The school with the most jobs seems to be MIC - MINH QUANG INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION, does anybody know whether this is a reliable employer or not? I have seen a couple of negative reviews but they are at least a year old so just wondering if they've upped their game? If not, does anybody know of any trustworthy schools I could apply to? Thanks!

I've noticed that things are rapidly changing in the Se Asian countries regarding teaching english. I have been scouring the boards, here and elsewhere in search of some solid answers but i have been unsuccessful. Hopefully a new question will open the doors to some new answers. I am 26, my gf is 23. The current state of our home country ( USA ) is in decline and it's becoming extremely difficult to make a comfortable living here. In addition, we would like to explore and travel the world. ...

Does anyone have any recommendations for ante natal classes or experiences that they can share. If possible I'd like to find classes run in English, so my wife doesn't have to worry about translating for me, although I figure that's a long shot. This will be our first baby, so I need all the help I can get! Any advice, suggestions or recommendations welcomed.
