Down the mountain and on to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)...you weren't there man...you wouldnt know...back in "'n'am"!

This place was only a quick stop over and the last place in Vietnam we had time for.  Its a busy little smelly city with even more persistant hagglers and hawkers than the rest of Vietnam.  Again a huge difference between the rich and the poor and the continuous deafening noise of mopeds and cars beeping.  We are nearly deaf at this stage.  Stayed on the usual backpacker central which was fairly buzzing.  Ended up copping Emma & Phil (father & daughter we met in Halong Bay) so thirty drinks later we got home!  Not much to say about this place except there isnt a whole lot we wanted to see unless you are into musuems etc and we aint.  The rats running around the tables in the bar was amusing and the cockroaches are huge, the heat is unreal and the temp never seems to drop its just light or dark out!  Always fun seeing the action on the street.  Our latest weirdest street seller has to be the woman who walks the streets with a giant hospital weighing scales....like who wants to weigh themselves at 2am?!!! well maybe someone with loads of beers on them....

5.5 hours sleep and we were up at the crow of the cockrels and relentless honking of horns to get our bus to Phnom Penh, Cambodia all for $10!
