Sitting at the airport waiting to fly to Hanoi, really hope they are friendlier up there. As compared to Cambodia people here are much more aggressive, pushy and happy to rip you off, as Gill and I found out at our expense. Taxi ride and bottle of crap wine.
What's the Saying if you don't get ripped of you haven't had a good day .!!!!! Who invented that saying possibly the people who do it
Plus it's apparently cooler, something I am desperate for.
Gill and I had to part ways in the taxi as she has international flight. But we had to go our own way sometime. Strangely enough I will be flying one way at 1.30 and Gills flight goes opposite, Singapore at 1.30 as she is on a round the world trip.
It's sad to leave when you get on, plus frightening to go off on your own again.
But Gill will be able to get a good night sleep from now on, plus not wake up frozen from the air-con. Think she swears I'm the original Polar bear. I do seem to be hotter than most, built in blanket I reckon.
But it was a fun few days and I'm sure we will catch up again sometime when home. Even if it's only because Gill wants to go Isle of Wight. Haha.
If not there is possibility I can go to Cheshire but have to share a bed with a young man. w***, is that a clause !!!!!
I have booked two nights at Mikes hotel in Hanoi, through agoda.com
So that could either be amazing at £5.00 per night or a disaster. But we did just book the last one with them for 3 nights and it was only £50.00,each I think.
Hard to know what you spend when it's in millionions.
Sometimes I do wonder what I'm doing, wandering around different countries, but think I am getting the experience, what would I be doing at home. Working out mostly or watching Emmerdale.
Yes seeing friends and family who I miss dearly, playing backgammon, which I love that day.Trish. Plus my days with sister, but you have been in Spain. In the wet, ohps, you would love this heat.
But other than that being single you are on your own, so just as well push yourself to the limit. At least I will have amazing memories. If my memory works in old age. If not is it all a waste of time. No it's not as living the dream is part of it.
Most of you are still asleep at 6.30
Mind you thanks to skype and FaceTime Plus my best friend the itouch, as the other friends leave, that better not I would be really lost
Rambling again, will update when at Mikes.
Well I had arranged a pick up from the airport which is a great relief to see your name held up. Ride took an hour, which traffic was horrendous.
Mikes was sort of as I'd expected but for a fiver it really is not to bad. Bathroom,TV, air-con
Which for the first time I don't need, great temperature here.Like a warm English summer day.
I have heard from Jess and she wants to meet me here, which means I have to occupy myself for 10 days so will look into that tommorow.
I have been out and had supper 2 pints local beer and beef noodles about £3.00 bargain. I sat outside eating which was right on a crossroads with 5 exits how there isn't accidents I don't know but it works. No one has insurance so they don't want to hit anyone, they all just dodge and weave past each other. You can even walk through the middle they won't run you over. They all let each other pass unlike home when they won't let anyone in. Fascinating to watch.
All just getting on with their lives.
More news tommorow, maybe !!!!
