The bus journey was good as I slept for the majority, it took 15 hours from Siem Reap to Ho Chi Minh City including a 30 min stop at Phnom Penh and an hour at the Vietnam boarder to get our visas stamped, finger prints scanned and luggage checked! You have to get your visa for Vietnam prior to arrival at the boarder! We purchased ours at the …
... that work at Easy Tiger, because there the ones that have to book me into a bed at 12 or 1 am when I'm locked out. And they just shake their heads and laugh.
There was one time about ten days ago when my landlady wanted to go to bed early and I wanted to go out, so I asked for the spare house key. She was so tentative. She showed me three times how to use it properly and she still looked unsure giving it to me. But she went ahead with it. And ...
... even more awesome pictures of this company, our caves, our treks, and Phong Nha/Tan Hoa. At 12 I head to Nga Me's for lunch. She's our Phong Nha mom that I posted about last week. We have fish, rice, soup, and lots of veggies. Mmm. We get an awesomely long lunch break here so after that I've got a couple choices: take a quick nap/rest, grab coffee, or have a Vietnamese lesson. lol and usually answer more emails.

... are some steps, actually, a lot of steps, must have been at least 400 & the higher we went the deeper the step. We have done some serious step climbing whilst in Vietnam.

At $15 a room with free wifi, computers and tea and coffee plus the lovely, very friendly and helpful couple that run it, this is a great guesthouse. It location is perfect, everything is within walking distance, and it's situated down a narrow alley buzzing with stalls and Vietnamese women cooking on the street! I love it! I have not give it 5 stars as our room is a little noisy as its above reception but not really much to complain about!
