It seems too big a task to write about what Vietnam is like, but I've heard that a photo is worth a thousand words, so I'm just going to post a bunch of photos. Here we go!
Crossing the border from Cambodia to Vietnam
The Saigon river
A few hours up the coast from Saigon is a beach town called Mui Ne. This is a fishing village just up the road from where we stayed.
It rained for two days in Mui Ne. We we're stuck in our soggy beachfront room reading, playing cards and staring at ceilings.
If anyone can tell me what the hell is going on here, I'd appreciate it.
Calum got a sun burn.
Roughing it for $6 a night per person in a mountain town called Dalat.
We rented motorbikes and went tooling around the countyside.
These women walk around the city collecting garbage.
I think they're groping around for freshwater clams. It's a bit of spectator event. I felt a bit like a voyeur taking these photos--like if someone saw me they may have gotten upset.
A big ol' Buddha
We stopped into this store to buy some jam, and we ended up getting a tour of the farm behind it and then having a cup of artichoke tea.
