We headed to the beach resort of Mui Ne mainly because its a top place to kite-surf and ever since Layne saw his mate Jake do it in SA he's wanted to learn so he too can be cool like all the other surfer dudes. So he did 2 mornings of lessons while i sat on the beach, which actually was very windy so i was getting sandblasted more than getting a tan. He nearly rode the board on the last day but then disater struck when after he fell all i could see was Laynes kite heading further and further out to sea, presumably with Layne still attached, and nobody seemed to be concerned. I pegged it about a mile down the beach ready to save him only to see him staring out at the sea watching the kite blow away, he'd just unattached it, phew. Had lots of cocktails as they were buy 1 get 1 free, bargin! Hired a moped and set off to see colourful sandunes and a fairy stream, but got lost so just came back and had more beers. Headed to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to visit the Chu Chi Tunnels and the war musuem. The trip around the tunnels was ok but the group we were in was massive so we couldnt see much and trying out the tunnels and entrance holes was annoying as we had to queue. The tunnels were very small and i only managed a small part as it was so hot, dark and crampt. The traps that the Viet Cong laid to maim the American troops were vicious! We then headed to the war museum whch again is very anti american but also very anti war and is very interesing. Unfortuantly it was again very crowded and i got really annoyed with stupid people who stand infront of the ifo for ages and dont let other people see..grrrr! They had a great display of the horrors of war with some really graphic photos of massacres and killing done by the US troops. It aslo had a moving display of the after effects of the chemical warfare that the US subjected the vietnamese to. People were badly disfigured by napalm and phospherous and those people that were exposed to agent orange had badly deformed children, very sad. We then persuaded another english couple to book on a Mekong Delta trip with us because we got free t-shirts. The trip was a bit s*** really as we thought we'd be cruising round the canals seeing picutresque villages and slowly making our way to Cambodia. In reality we spent many hours on a bus, had crap food, not much to see and then got left at the Cambodian border without our promised bus to Phnom Phen, rubbish (sorry Claire and Dave!)!
