In Vietnam at the moment where it's raining constantly, we've heard about the typhoon in the Phillipines that has killed almost 400 people and apparently it's coming our way! It's supposed to be weakening though so we'll probably be fine. We've been in the country for about a week now, our first stop was Ho Chi Minh city (formerly Saigon) which is really modern & has a fantastic post office; this is good because it's so cheap here we've bought tons of stuff & needed to sernd it home!
We went to another jungle temple yesterday, this time built by the Cham people who stuck their bricks together with a substance that we don't know how to copy! We've seen some big, balconied houses and chinese style temples and we've gotten absolutely soaked!
Kirsty loves it here because the tailoring is so cheap & she can buy a million dresses that she'll never wear! It's the cheapest country so far (apart from India which didn't have anything nice to buy) I bought 2 tailored suits for 40quid!
