Yesterday was fun. Kelly (th local girl) picked me up to take me on a tour of Saigon, we went all around and saw the main sights, the driving is absolutely mental. After a spot of lunch we headed back to her family home for her to pick something up and as we turned her street the front wheel of her motorbike fell off sending me flying over the top of her onto the street...oh no!
So I get up and manage to carry her bike back to her house down the road, heavy as! and I sat with her mum and sister chatting while her sis practiced her english with me. Lovely family and amazing to see how they live.
Unfortunately the night got worse as I left my camera in the taxi but hey ho, not everything can go right and I didnt lose many photos so its all good!
Today I headed on a tour with "slim Jim" this guy is brilliant, he was given a book of slang so was shouting out random phrases along the way..."my trouble and strife", "my dog and bone in my sky rocket" haha.
We went to Tay Ninh to watch a Cao Dai ceremony, it ứa an amazing place to visit, very colourful and well worth a trip! on the way we stopped at a factory for disabled workers who make morther of pearl furniture and pictures, very talented people. Finally we headed to the Cu Chi tunnels where the Viet Cong fought their war and got to shoot an AK47. I have good pictures but the net is too slow to upload so I will find somewhere else to do it.
Tomorrow I'm going to the war museum and a Pagoa then will take the night bus to Nha Trang for some relax time at the beach, hope to find a wee beach hut but might not work out so will wait and see.
Hope to get pics up soon, until then chao!
