Where I stayed
We fly tonight at 18:50.
Last night we went out for a few drinks and bumped into the Brummie, Tony (whose local is the Wagan and Horses in Halesowen for those of you that know it) and the Londoner Gary. We meet them back in Silnockvile on Christmas day and didn't expect to see them again! It really is a small world. So then we took in the night life of Phonom Penh, which was a bit of an eye opener I can tell you. We're going to chil out today by the pool as it was a lively night and check out at about 4pm to get to the airport.

Another day, another dusty city, that Ho Chi Minh City. We've been walking around the city today, taking in the ambience. The Vietnamese seem to be a rather elegant sort of people. We've brought some paintings and other bits and bobs. We're currently debating whether to go up the Mekong delta or to head straight to the beach at Nha Trang or Danang. It seems the weather up north is not so good, but we'll see. At the moment we're here until 1st January.
The city has been decorated for the New Year festivities and it looks quite stunning. I think we're off to see some tunnels tomorrow or to walk 'The Ho Chi Minh trail'.
I've also added some of our pictures to this page and some others from Siem Reap in the other pages.
