Nha Trang is like a truck stop. Or a vast city built up on the "Yankee Dollar". It is probably a bit like both and it can't make up its mind.

When we got there it was raining, not just a little bit but a lot. The place was bad enough, but when it rains that hard, it is even worse. We decided just to go snokelling and leave for the south (and hotter weather) as soon as possible.

Rainbow divers (for all your diving needs, Nha Trang) were most helpful. The Aussie owner persuaded us that it didn't matter if it was raining as we'd be wet anyway and off we went. We saw loads of fishes and coral and fishes and coral and fishes and coral and fishes and coral and fishes and coral and fishes and coral and fishes and coral. One of the divers mentioned that we could be heard laughing while they were down in the depths, so it must have been good. They also commented that the best stuff to see there was within four feet, why people bothered to pay 50USD to dive we don't know.

Mind you we did learn a lot about the typical diver. They are generally middle class, working in IT, or some similar mundane but well paid job. There is obviously the diving jargon that accompanies this sport and the usual question of "how many hours have you done". It's abit like golfers talking about their handicap. We were cast aside by the divers, until T decided enough was enough and proceeded to tell some divers the number of times she had snorkelled. She was shunned!

Good fish and chips at Rainbow divers (for all your diving needs, Nha Trang) as well.

Snokelling in the South China Sea. Done. Tick.

Right off for some sun.

Big Love
