Xin Chau, Hello from Vietnam!!
Look at me being all educational for you all. Hope your all ok anyway.
Bin doin loads of sight seeing last couple of weeks, just bin getting mopeds out en stuff its been really nice, just been goin round all little villages en people are really nice wanting to learn from you. Other day we'd been out all day on bikes, we got pally we some lads from london en they came aswell, when we got back ad not eaten all day cos in some places, theres just nowt ad even touch, anyway we all went for a meal to this vietmanese place, so i just oredered roast chicken, every1 elses food came but mine en a wo starvin really looking forward to tucking in 2 a morrisons like roast.... Well a knew it wont guna go be like that but when it arrived it looked a bit funny, so a started prodding it wi me chopstick, en a piece rolled ova en there wo a full grown chickens foot on me plate wi furr nails en lot!! Am not exaggerating when a say a nearly fell of me chair it scared me that much, en then to top it off there wo the chickens neck for me to stuck in to, a think they gave me every part of the chicken except the breast of wings, a wo gutted could'nt touch it, no1 else cud either so a went hungry that day!.
Went out while we wo in nimbin, only a quite village wi hardly any backpackers really, the man who owned the hotel took us to his local 1st, where we wo drinking the local beer for 6P a pint!! En then we headed down to this restaurant/kareoke bar en it wo full of vietmanese people, anyway after 2 bottle of vodka, me alex en duncan wo getting itchy feet to get up there, so we go up en we totally took ova that stage for about 30mins, we all ad a mike, en alex started off by saying to em, am guna sing you a song all the way from england, she's wrecked obviously at thisd point, en where waiting thinking what she guna sing, en she breaks into "happy birthday 2 me, happry birthday 2 me" well we wo in sticthes finking it wo hilarious en all people in pub wo just starin at us, we wo walking down stage like we wo doin at catwalk, none of us singing songs at all just teking ova stage, the man manage to get 1 mike off us, en then all you can see is me en alex fighting ova other 1 so we dunt miss lime light, it hilarious carlies got some of it on vid, then i grab mike en am saying "COME ON EVERY1 BODY UP, A WANA SEE YOU ALL DANCING" en they wo all just staring at us like blankly, am not surprised. In end band packed up so we dint av no choice, we got down. Another local got up later on when the band decided to play agen later so we all jumped up en wo being his backing dancers, a think he wo scared to be honest. Ha!! Funny night.
Day after we ad to get on a night bus we beds which wont the best 10hrs hours sleep av eva ad, en then we ad to get the local bus to Hoi An, we got to bus station en asked how much it was, en the lads that help get the bags on the bus said 100,000 dong, which we knew wo a lie en went inside en got tickets for 30,000, we went to get on the mini bus, en they wo all screaming in are face saying that we could'nt get on we dint understand y, we soon worked out that they wo just being arkward because they'd not managed to rip us off, they kept letting us struggle with all are bags ova every1, en then ragging are bags off en screaming till we left the bus, 1 bloke helped alex with her bag, she walked on 1st but he kept smaking her on back of her head wi bag, we wo all ready to explod at this point, but then we'd look at each other en start laffing, cos we could'nt believe what they wo doin, in end we'd got on and off 3 buses b4 they let us squeeze right at the back with all are bags all ova us, carlie ad a little old vietmanese woman fast asleep on her, we just not avin the luck wi these buses are we!!
