... something stodgy alright - rice and beef wasn't going to cut it!! Lol) we can safely classify it as the best hangover day we have ever had!!! On our final day in Nha trang is when we headed to the Thap Ba Spa mud baths. Thinking we would feel rejuvenated and spend the day relaxing by the thermal pool. Well... It wasn't quite the Turkey mud baths we had done previously. We had chosen a Sunday, which clearly the whole of Vietnam had also chosen Sunday. We were herded like sheep to ...

... literally cooked a curry from scratch and made fresh Roti (na’an style bread but whole wheat) which they had to first create a dough then kneed it before finally baking it over a hot plate. To date, we hadn’t had very good food in the north of India but this lunch was by far the best thing we had tasted in 2 weeks.
