Woah Bangkok!

So he i am! After a 9ish hour flight I have arrived safely and have made my way to the most dingiest fleapit of a guesthouse. I am a little lost as to what to do with myself. I have so much to do yet i don't know where to start.
There are a few things that stand out for me, the first is the traffic. It is much more sedate than Saigon, people drive on the left side of the road AND some motorcyclists actually wear helmets!!! wow
Well i think i might go for a walk around for a bit and write a little more later on. gotta get me a simcard!

Claire, you can now add labels to indicate where you are... have a look at all the old posts, they have labels like 'Vietnam' and 'Hanoi' etc... so add the country and the city you're in, as well as anything else you think is appropriate... then you can group post and read all posts from a certain city or country or whatever... Have fun in the world.

I'm going to work with Bec to update the artwork to reflect the new world-wide-ness of this blog.

Yay! You landed safely. That was my main concern, now I can stop worrying about you. Dingy means cheap, right? Give us prices. Tell us about the food! How much is a coke? What is the state of the internet cafes? How is the weather? How long are you staying? What is your next port of call? And you don't know what to do with yourself? Why, film everything of course! And then photograph it. And then post it. We want some audio-visual aid here. That should be enough to keep you busy for a few days. Over and out.

Saigon Again

Four days in Dalat and we can't wait to get home. One afternoon in Saigon and suddenly we're in no hurry. We found (were shown by a crazy lady in a blue shirt with a badge on it) an awesome little guesthouse down three alleys, each one smaller than the last. We're up three flights of tiny ladder stairs (I have no idea how we're going to get our bags back down!) in a room with cable tv and hot water and a tiny balcony from which we can jump to three of the neighbouring buildings. Two opposing fans create a nice tornado above our bed. This is good as it is really hot again. Saigon apparantly has two seasons, wet hot and dry hot.

There are two long term guests staying in the other rooms, a Canadian on the second floor and an Australian on the first.

Tomorrow we will eat as much Pho as possible and maybe take a sun sauna. Good for the complexion.

Bec,
Saigon
