Holly Crap I'm in Vietnam!!!
You can NOT come to Vietnam without a visa!! My travel agent and all the other people I spoke to were wrong, I should have looked into it better myself. They detained me for 7 hours, it felt like days especially because of the time difference. But miraculously they let me pay them a crazy amount and they made me a visa. So here I am :o)
You'll know your in Vietnam when you are in Vietnam and the fact that I'm by myself hit me like a brick. It's not even close to anywhere else I've ever been or even seen on tv. The drive in was crazy I'm pretty sure we literally ran over a couple people! They're no stop lights or turn signals, people just drive all over the place, on sidewalks, the wrong side of the street and just lay on their horn, Holly Cow! It was very smokey, reminded me of the old war movies, and people are very poor, almost all the houses here are made of a couple tin or wood walls, no doors...
I found my hotel last night didn't dare leave it.
Up early this morning and went exploring, I don't even how to begin explaining what it feels like to be here & step out side. I'm definitely on the other side of the world :o)
I miss you all so much already!!!
