Saigon

Just a quick note to let everybody know the despite Jetstar's wild incompetance, we made it all the way to Saigon, and so did our bags. Woot.

Now we're trying to figure out how we can fill two and a half months without doing all that much if you know what I mean.

The weather is reassuringly hot and sticky, there was a massive downpour for a few hours this morning but now it is sunny.

Our room is more expensive than we would have liked, but we are too lazy to search for an alternative. So I guess that's the gist of it - lazy days!

Here is photo evidence of Paul in Saigon. For you hardcore followers (anyone?) you will notice this is the same internet cafe from which we first posted in our Vietnam tour of 2006.



Bec & Paul,
Saigon

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.
