Hello Tuk Tuk

Ok we have sorted out a new room - only $5 a night. That's more like it I say! Paul says things like does it have a power outlet? Or does it have hot water? Does it have a fan?

Bah! It has this view and that is all that's important.


It also has a massive communal area with hammocks and couches and a dvd library - these things are important too.



Here is the view from our first hotel room if Paul holds my ankles while I hang out the window and zoom in all the way to avoid the wall of the building opposite and the unusually large carpark.



Here is a monkey.



Here is our amazingly expensive breakfast in some sort of beautifully furnished air-conditioned cafe with free wi-fi. For all of $4 we only get tea or coffee, orange juice, crepes, croissants, jam, butter and honey and free internet. What a rip. For those of you in the area La Croisette is the name.

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
