we got to our hostel and they had no reservation for us, because clever clogs here had booked it for this date but for next month. clever. luckily they had room for us!
we are staying in the backpacker part of the city, very lively, but actually feels more relaxed than in Hanoi. Saigon is almost double the size of hanoi, even though the the latter is the capital city.
we went out for a long lunch and got chatting to the man next to us who was a trip leader for a group from a school who had been doing project work, he was sweet, reminded me of one of my old lecturers from university.
i then played with the cutest calmed podgiest puppy ever, he was only 20 days old, so i was really concerned that he was just playing in the street, but i guess they just do things differently here, they said he had no name, so i made them call him bob, as it suited him. he was so small,just bigger than my two hands put together, i loved him of course. asked if i could keep him. i am going to keep asking them until they give in. it was sort of love at first sight and i have a feeling that when i leave here in two days without bob i am going to be a little heartbroked. i am daft over dogs.
as i'm writing this i'm really excited. im meeting up with an old friend in about half an hour! i've not seen zara in four years, and now i'm going to see her in half an hour....in vietnam!!! she lives here now...eeeeee....excited!!!
better go get ready!
