I'll explain this as I'm sure you're like: "huh?" Con Dao island is home to a large turtle population and the local government is working hard to protect them and their survival.

I figured out that the GPS function REALLY drains my battery. I have great long term memory but the names of these places will escape me when I bore everyone with my slideshows. Muah ah ah ah! I came back to my villa to catch some sun and enjoy the view. It's tidal here so it's amazing watching the ...
