6 am, really!?!? Well, we sat down for breakfast on time and was rewarded with coffee, eggs and bread (no noodles).
We were then informed that the water in the river outside the house was too low for our boat to make it so we had to go on mopeds first, can you see how excited I am about the whole thing?
Well, we made it alive to the boat and I survived the return back to the mainland without any panic attacks. Well there we where met by the car (no picture today, it was the same as yesterday so check out that post), that would take us to what I was told a bigger boat, I’ll let you decide;
The destination was the floating market and it’s pretty cool. Not only do they sell all random stuff, they also have what our guide called a “minibar boat” that sells drinks and coffee.
We also stopped for some fresh pineapple on one of the boats, tastes soo much better than pineapple at home.
Then the boat adventure ended (for this time) when we got off at the local market. How about some skinned frogs that are still alive?
It makes you real hungry to walk around and see all the vegetables and meats laid up.
So it was a good thing that we headed for lunch, and even better that I fell asleep in the car, I say it again: 6am wakeup!?!?
For lunch I ordered grilled prawns thinking that for once I thought I knew what I would get on my plate, I didn’t realize that the BBQ would actually take place at the table;
With the relaxing lunch over and done with we turned back to Saigon where we had been told that we would be at five, so our flight out was booked for 20:10, we arrived at three and settled for the wait. Lucky me the airport had Doughnuts and food without noodles.
On the other side, in Da Nang the luxury continued as a little guy was waiting for us with a sign with the Queen herself’s name on it, and a nice ride to take us to Hue.
I’ve been told that I get to spend three nights here so maybe it’s time for some real vacation. In the mean time I’m enjoying the local beer and pretending to unpack my bag.
Peace out ma peeps!
