Now lets backtrack!

Hey!
Well Kaz and i thought Koh Chang island was the bomb!
After a lovely 4 hour air-conditioned coach ride we hopped on the ferry to take us to the island. Our first impressions weren't all that good but as we drove further passed the touristy resorts and 7-11's we found a lovely spot called lonely beach.
we arrived rather late into town so we found somewhere for the night at a place called the treehouse. It was a little hut not far from the beach on stilts made of palm leaves with just a bed and a mosquito net...very cute. Before we went to sleep we cracked open a few coconuts and had a mini feast. The next morning we woke to the sound of thuds of coconuts falling from the trees and decided to look for somewhere else, the fear of death by coconut got the better of us...just jokes, they charged too much for a room with nothing in it.
with not much effort at all, we found the bungalow of our dreams, halfway between the nicer beach and the treehouse restaurant where all the good parties are and a great place to relax. Our new hut had a shower a basin and a toilet as well as a fan and power sockets....what more does a person need??...besides a hammock?
basically the days to follow were spent playing uno, swimming, eating and relaxing. We tried to hire a scooter but we almost had an accident so we ditched that idea, we were going to go for a kayak but we wer kinda sick and went swimming instead.
we saw a snake! ooh!
i had the best sweet and sour prawns EVER!!...really!! like one of the best things i have ever eaten, shame it gave me food poisoning and Kaz got sick from the seafood pad thai!
met some cool people and some really odd ones, i bit off more than i could swallow when we ordered a bucket each to drink, kaz got sick left me with both buckets and i found myself singing kareoke to some powderfinger song and forgetting all the lyrics and sounding amazingly BAD...this was in a small town, the people made sure i didn't forget about it! oh and apparently i was dancing alot...can't remember that!...never again!
well we are off to a party at the place we are staying, free shots! i will not partake i any of these antics, maybe we'll play some uno and try and get some sleep.

bye from Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Sounds like you're having a ball. I'm horribly jealous and I can bet that Bec is too.

It's true! I am jealous! Horribly so! Except for the getting drunk bit. I'll leave that up to the experts. And no word on the photos?? I want my video too! How do we know you're not just camped out at Melbourne Airport?

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
