Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon

overcast 30 °C

Hi all,

How are you??

Well whoever said Vietnam would be colder has so far lied to us! It was mid 30's crossing the boarder the other day and we all had to carry our bags and wait in the sun while we had our visas checked - phew hot! We have actually seen some rain here though - not much as it is coming to the end of rainy season but it was actually strangly nice to see!

We have spent a night in Chau Doc, then travelled onto Ho Chi Minh City, and we are leaving that in the next few hours. We have had a dabble at barginning in the local markets - quite an experience, and been to see the cu chi tunnels which were seriously small and freaked me out!
Dan played with a big gun. He shot an AK47 on their range and scared the living daylights out of me!
We had a wander around their museum to the Vietnam/American war as well - interesting as it isn't something Dan or I knew much about.

And onto another new experience very soon - night train out of ho chi minh city - wish us luck!
