Crawling out of bed with all the enthusiasm and vigor of some road kill I managed at least to figure out how to turn the fan speed up as the room began to resemble an oven before deciding that was enough exertion for one morning and promptly returning to bed.

Finally surfacing around lunch time (it was daylight and that was the best I could tell at the time) and feeling I'd better not waste the whole day I headed to get a late breakfast and ran into the local guy Dylan (still unconscious) met yesterday who said he would go on a city tour with him at 9am. Wondering if we were even back by 9am I said I would go speak to him but only after I'd tracked down a pancake or two.

With Dylan dutifully off on a round the town tour I spent some time updating travelpod before trying out some of the local seafood of which there was plenty to choose from with many restaurants laying out their selections in elaborate displays in front of the entrance.

Back at the guest house Dylan was just about ready to get the night bus to Saigon (poor guy) as we would unfortunately go our separate ways with him hot-footing it to Saigon to make it in time for a flight from Bangkok to France.

Not feeling like doing much else tonight I whiled away the time watching Goldfinger on TV complete with the Vietnamese efforts at dubbing which basically just consists of a single person in a mono-tone talking over the movie regardless of the characters sex - Pussy Galore certainly loses a certain quality on speaking with a masculine Vietnamese voice.
