Where I stayed
It's so hot here, it's quite amazing. I don't cope well with this sort of heat :)
Got here early, very little sleep on the bus last night, but went straight out for the best breakfast I've had in weeks - Eggs Benedict, yummy...
Decided it was too hot to walk around, and as there's a nice beachfront promenade, I hired a bicycle - great fun
I'm not much one for beaches though, or swimming. Took a quick paddle in the sea, and a big wave got me (up to my waist), so at least I can say I've been in the South China Sea :)
As I don't think there's much else to do here, other than lay on the beach, I've decided to take the morning bus to Dalat, up in the mountains, so I can cool off a bit, before heading to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), my final port of call in Vietnam.
Have been sitting up on the roof terrace this evening and it's cooling down a bit now, there's some lightning going on, and I actually felt a couple of spots of rain earlier. Oh, rain would be lovely!
Speak to you soon
