Stopped in Hoi An, made it to Nah Trang

After some considerable time on buses, we made it to Nah Trang via a 6 hour stop over in Hoi An, city of tailors. Everyone I met or was travelling with had bought something at a tailors in Hoi An, and none of them were 100% happy with what they got. It was all pretty good, but not perfect.

Thankfully, I managed to escape without buying anything! I was thinking about getting some smart(ish) black trousers and a pair of shoes, I’m just not that keen on looking like a backpacker in nightclubs, but I resisted the temptation as it would have involved getting up from my seat at the bar next door to the bus pickup point! I might still get them in Ho Chi Minh City, we’ll see…

We had pizza for (late) lunch today, which seems like a rather odd concept, eating pizza in Vietnam. However, once you’ve tried fried rice with beef / chicken / pork / bird flu / whatever other meat takes your fancy, you’ve really tried them all. That, and of course the legendary Vietnamese spring rolls. As far as I’ve been able to make out from menus though, that’s pretty much as far as it goes. There are a few soups thrown in for good measure.

Who knows, maybe I’m just beeing fussy and need to broaden my culinary horizons. I am wondering how Fergus coped in Singapore for 4 months though. He’s now having withdrawal symptoms from his daily intake of fried rice and chicken!

It’s raining here in Nha Trang just now and the forecast is for thunderstorms here and in Ho Chi Minh City. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be in Vietnam…

Till next time, see you on the ether. C
