Well i am sad to say that we will be leaving the wonderful city of ho chi minh tonight and venture off north to the beach town of Nha Trang. Today we spent visiting the meekong delta, it was amazing. We canoed through mangrove canals, held a python and listened to some traditional vietnamese music. The Delta is so big that is has over 4 islands 3 of which we visited. i am having writing block at the moment so i will have to cut my entry short but i see over my shoulder that bec and paul have both written extensively so i am probably just repeating anyway.

oh yeah, my ankles and feet have swolen up to twice their size, if anyone knows of a cure please help as it is very uncomfortable, i hope it is because of the heat and humidity and not because i have caught some deadly tropical disease, though i am on the look out for and further symptoms.

bye for now

Hi claire,

Your 'swankles' will probably be due to the heat etc. Btw, read you emails and return when you can. Dad

Hello Claire, Rebecca and Paul,
Glad to hear you are all having a great time. Your web site is very interesting - keep it up.
I am back in Melbourne now Claire, after a very long and tiring flight from Manchester. I had a good time in England with Andrew. He's working hard (i think) in Prague. He only has one week to go before the course finishes. That has gone quickly. Sorry to hear about your feet. Try to elevate them as much as possible. Hopefully the swelling will go down but do keep an eye on it. Continue having a great time all, love Maureen
