So we made our bus after being stuck in traffic in the taxi and then running across the park to pick up our bags!
For 5 hours I observed the vietnamese lifestyle flash past. It seemed that once we left the city the cleanliness dissapeared and the houses lost their 1x2m luxury of those in ho chi minh.
It's was like the scenery was a broken Record. As we passed each town I noticed the same recurring things happening.. There are shrines left right and centre and in bushes and made out of all sorts o things that people have found around (full garbage bags, foil etc.) all around we're little kids playing with rocks and thing from the ground. There were little fires outside every second house (Alysha said its then burning their rubbish) and as the day turned to night and everyone turned their shops into homes, I noticed that they really have no concern for privacy. Every house had massive front doors but all of them were open, and inside you could see the whole family playing or eating on their livig room floor in front of the tv..
Ps the dogs here are SO cute!!
