More Stockholm

So it was really sad to leave that city, the Swedish people really have a great way of life there. It is really expensive like London but it is so tranquil, not crowded and the weather was so stunning, 25-30 degrees everyday perfect for out beach bbq's and Erasmus picnics.
walking through the city you are never far from a park or square and the water appears at every turn. My favorite day in Stockholm was walking through the national forest surrounding the Erasmus accommodation and finding my own secluded beach for a swim, I also had a great day with Kevin the Canadian (who's room i stayed in while he was in eastern Europe) we strolled around one of the bohemian districts of Stockholm and visited record shops and vintage boutiques.
It was a great time to be in Stockholm, i arrived just when the weather was getting nice and all the students had graduated from their studies so the streets were alive with people and all yellow and blue with the European cup fever in the air.

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.
