We had two days of rain during the week which was rubbish, but other than that it was lovely. We also used this time by the pool to read, 'The Girl in the Picture' and 'First They Killed My Father' which helped us empathise with both Vietnam and Cambodia respectively and the wars which tore their countries apart in the 1970's. With going to see the Cu-Chi Tunnels in Saigon and The Killing Fields in Cambodia, they gave us the background knowledge needed to understand what happened back then and see how the countries haves adapted/recovered.
After a week we caught the bus to Ho Chi Minh (formerly Saigon which it is still referred as). An hour and a half after we were meant to be picked up, the bus finally turned up, but we whiled away the time chatting to a couple from Canada who we'd met on the bus from Hoi An. I am writing this on the bus and hoping we won't get in any later than 8pm, but who knows!?!
