Throwback Thursday ~ Bangkok 1983

Vincent has scanned more photo slides, saving them from further deterioration and yellowing.  Here is a carousel of slides from a business trip he took in the spring of 1983, just before our wedding and my college graduation.  It was his first international business trip to Bangkok, Thailand as part of a team designing the new airport.

He had digitized dozens of slides, but these are the most interesting...
