This time we have upload 2 short videos - enjoy

It's been a wonderful 4 weeks in Vietnam. Here are our thoughts as we leave this amazing Asian country.

What we WILL miss (not in any particular order):
* roses
* delicious food: pumpkin soup made with coconut milk, PHO (beef noodle soup), spring rolls (our favorite were made from crepes in Sapa)
* 11 cent beer and 70 cent sandwiches made with fresh bread
* Restaurants who hire disadvantaged teenagers and young adults and educate them for a better life: KOTO (Know One Teach One) Restaurant and Le Pub Bar
* Soft sleeper trains
* Sapa
* Saigon
* beautiful women who speak perfect English
* beautiful children/babies
* taking 2 000 000 d (dong) from my bank account knowing that it was only $120 CND
* cheap CD's and DVD's
* interesting (and somewhat crazy) people to talk to on the street
* our Foster Family
* cheap prices and bargaining
* sunset walks around the lake in Hanoi
* our tour group (Kris from Australia and Mike from the UK)
* Vespas

What we WILL NOT miss:
* Malaria pills (which made us very grouchy)
* horns
* pushie cyclo and post card sales people
* traffic
* smog
* Hanoi
* 7 am radio (wake up) broadcasts in the streets of Hanoi
* guys hitting on David ;) wink! wink!
* tiny little stools to sit on in the "beer garden" on street corners where we got our 11 cent beer
* Visit Vietnam. You will want to come back again!
