Have a good time in Vietnam. My friend Mike (you've met him) now lives in HCM City. He rang the other day and asked when WE were going. I said you were there. Let me know if you want to catch up with him on the way back....GF XX

Vietnam Vietnam!! Have you been ripped off yet? And why the hell are you catching the bus to Nha Trang!? Train it, baby! How's the weather? How long will you be in the country? Where did you stay in Saigon? Can you see the blog (it's yellow now!) or is it mysteriouisly unavailable again? Anyway, I KNOW you can upload photos from Vietnam, so do it already. Man, suddenly my day job is more boring than I thought. I'm jealous! Anyway, keep us posted!

Are you going to catch up with Theresa while you're in Saigon? I think I have her email if you have time before you head off again.

By the way, we're still working on a new design. Bec's been fiddling with colours as you may have noticed.

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
