Thankfully the bus arrived in Nha Trang around 7am without any more incidents, and I had managed to get a little sleep. When we got to the tour operators office we decided to get out on foot and go in search of a place to stay, rather than be driven round the city to their partner guesthouses. We were in the area we wanted to stay anyway.

Ignored the touts and the LP and just went to inspect any hotel we came across until we found one to our liking at the price of $7 again. Happy with the room I turned on ESPN and started to watch some NFL. Seattle vs New York and it proved to be an incredibly close match with NY messing up 3 overtime kicks and Seattle finally killing them off. Not that I saw the end as I fell asleep for 4 hours!

Decided to head to the beach as shock horror it wasn't raining, 99% cloud though. Hell I was at the beach and it was warm so I didn't care. Spent 5 hours sitting under a palm shade outside the Sailing Club catching up with my diary and reading.

Had a pretty uninspiring Indian near our hotel and managed to buy 4 copied books from a street seller. That'll add yet more weight to my backpack!

Decided to see what the night life was like. Made the most of the happy hour in Guava until it ended at midnight. I loved the style of the bar and it is what I would want my bar to look like if I opened one, which I won't.

We set off to the Sailing Club for another couple of drinks. It was packed and we got chatting to a bunch of Aussies, again!, before heading back for some sleep and hopefully sun tomorrow.
