Bye Cambodia morning Vietnam
Day started at 5.30 with young kids running up and down the corridor(I did put my head out and tell parent off) so it went quiet, but with that the aerobic dancers started up on the waterfront
as they do every morning and evening. Someone brings the ghetto blaster and people appear, anyone can go and join in, it's funny to watch. Wish I could upload video.
Gill and I have been on coach so far for 2 hours, it's busy but pleasant hostess and cambodian DVD !!!!
You are not going to believe this though she takes your passports to check you have got you Vietnam visa, in mine they have never put in a Cambodian departure form. So that causes a bit of problem hostess makes a call, then gives me a departure form advises me that will have to wait till we get to the border to see police. Always scary when your in another country but sure it will be okay. I haven't lost it they never gave me one.
Gill comes from Cheshire and is travelling on her own, she was at the Orphanage for two weeks.
So we seem to get on well, going to spend 3 nights in HoChi Minh (Saigon ) as it used to be called in a bit more up Market hotel called LAN LAN 2 Hotel in district 1,we think !!!! It is going to cost us the grand sum of 50 dollars each for the 3 nights, so we will see. Then Gill is off to Singapore ,Australia and NZ before traveling home end of January.
At the end of the 3 days I get a flight to Hanoi where I will possibly spend the next ten days travelling around sight seeing , as Jess wants to meet me there when her mum leaves, 5th December .
Plan is then to travel down the outside of Vietnam bringing us back to Cambodia and the children for Xmas
Hopefully that will work.
We have just crossed the Mekong river on a ferry heading towards the border in approx hour half. So will come back to this later, let you know the outcome.
Just got back from having supper, amazing king prawns and noodles it was delicious but very spicy. Cost us 4700,000 which we reckon is about £14.00
We actually arrived here about 4.00 after being ripped off by taxi, but we did get warned and we still got ripped off. Thought we were clever, but no.
Hotel is great have 3 nights here. Bath and all, we are up Market backpackers.
So Much so Gill is making me feel guilty doing her exercise on the bed. But she told me it's cause she is constipated. Mmmmmm maybe to much information.
Have booked two trips half day tomorrow,( blame Gill for that one) then full day Thursday going to the Cu Chi tunnels,( that's where they hid in the Vietnam war) and a few temples.
Apparently you have to guard your bags with your life here which does scare you. Buy it is very busy and traffic is crazy.
Brought a bottle of wine with us so just going to finish that and then bed.
Gill is still exercising might have to join in !!!!!!! Or just laugh !!!!
Oh yes forgot to let you know that I'm a millionaire changed up 50 dollars and got 1050500.000 work that one out.!!!!
Night night, catch you later.xx
Ps They just charged me 5dollars at the border for there mistake, but luckily didn't deport me . Xx
