Sihannoukville

Hi All!
tomorrow we are supposed to be leaving sihannoukville and it is really sad! The place we are staying t is really great! the people who own it are very lovely, letting us stay for free and we basically run the place, the bar, the music it is a blast! having partys evernight! It is right on the beach and when i say right on the beach i mean the legs of the banana lounges and chairs we lie in catch the white bubbles in the waves.
Today Kaz and i got our visas for VN SO EXCITED TO GO BACK!! bec ad paul yes we are are going to hoi an hanoi and of course Sapa! i will say hi to the girls for you!
We also went to the market (photos soon!!) then came back and went for a cycle to the nearby more quieter beaches. we rode through the loveliest little fishing village where there were making boats, it was set where a river meets the sea and you could see all the tropical fish in theh water as we rode over the beach.
Yesterday we ate a typical cambodian dinner at a street stall and tasted rice wine and. We went on a really nice tour to the islands off the coast and did some snorkelling eating and lazing on the beach, a really lovely day, the fish were amazing!
It will be hard to leave this place, we have really become part of it and having alot of fun with the kids, they are really sweet. Cambodian people are really lovely also, always saying hello and keen to help, always smiling!

well i am off for now, maybe i'll write next from Phnom Penh

Hello Claire,
Glad to hear you're having a great time. It all sounds very interesting and inviting. I'm not sure how you will adapt to England, and especially Manchester, after having such a good time. Still you can always imagine you're back on a beach in Cambodia when you're riding on a crowded, dirty bus on a wet Manchester morning. Not that I want to put you off Manchester!!!
Keep safe and well (that goes for Kaz too)
Lots of love,
Mum

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
