Nha Trang

I imagine Nha Trang is quite a happening place in high season, however Nov 1st is definitely not high season around here. We arrived about 7am and went out to look around but there was no one about and the waves were so vicious looking we didn't go in the sea (neither did anyone else, i'm not just a wuss) We went to the sailing club and played a couple of games of chess and then went back for a siesta, ROCK!

Still things picked up later when a canadian couple we had met in Hoi An wandered into the same bar as us on Halloween. Being North Americans they take Halloween very seriously so they were dressed up as trees with a hammock between them and their male friend was dressed in drag. You have to see a guy in drag in vietnam, the loacals couldn't believe it, guys were crossing the street to grope him and people were falling off their bikes looking over their shoulders, it was hilarious. Theres a photo on here now which isn't working at present but hopefully will be when you read this (Magic Macca is on the case)

We booked a boat trip for the next day which was pretty cool, we ended up drinking mulberry wine while hanging from life preservers in the sea and the chefs and guide bloke put on a show playing songs from around the world (yellow submarine, la bamba,etc)

Now we're in Dalat and we're doing a motorbike tour tomorrow which should be fun, my first time on a motorbike (no i'm not driving). Then we hightail it to Ho Chi Minh to pick up some Laos visas and then head into Cambodia, Oooooooh!

I think you should risk a first time ride of a motorbike than be clinging to some tour guide's back all day.

I had the same problem on halloween too. women get wolf whistling at me - i don't get it, all i was wearing was Aafke's (V.small) nurse outfit and a miniskirt, all covered in blood. perfectly normal i thought. women are strange creatures, clearly they're all inheriently bisexual. thus concludes Al's thought of the day.

Binx, that's the most irresponsible sentance on ash's blog! 'Ride a motorbike, go wine tasting!'

I have a vision of ash after a skinfull of wine, weaving in and out of traffic, eek!

Too damned right I still haven't cut my hair. Bendy's got this bet in the bag. I might look like a girl, but it'll be worth it just so you have to wine and dine me Macca.

You've got a date boy, and she's a real pretty boy.

Honestly, I stop checking your blog for updates and not only do you do two, but your comments have descended into chatter about drink driving, bloody drag artists and bendy going bent. What is the world coming to???!?!?!?!?!
