Bec and Paul are trundling through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia until school is back in March 2009. They insist on keeping a blog despite the facebook thing being much more likely to attract any interest.

Blah... Hue

Blah. Hue. I'm bored. Don't care.
This place is fairly uninspiring. There's the Citadel, which sounds big and scary but is probably just a wire fence. There the DMZ (Demilitarised Zone) pretty close by, I'm gonna go into those tunnel things, fire an AK-47 and jump on some mines. Or maybe I'll just visit Khe Sahn and make a silly video to put to some awful pub-rock music.
Whatever. It's hot. I fell asleep after lunch. I've started eating western food again, because 2 weeks of nothing but noodles and rice and spring rolls actually gets old. I'm sick of Cyclos, and motorbikes and being hassled to buy something. We should have stayed longer in Saigon. Next trip I suggest we try to head south as quickly as possible.

Hue (yawn)

Hi,

Not sure if you are are that most Vietnamese people try to avoid sun light in the middle of the day and have a rest or better still a siesta if they can.

The Vietnamese version of "Slip, Slap and Slop" is a cone hat for women and a hat for men. I'd suggest that you all have plenty of rest in between and take care of exposure to too much sunlight. Hope you all may be able to enjoy more of the experience.

It's a dirt poor country after so many wars inside.

Cheers
