Well, I find it hard to believe that I have been here now over 2 weeks. Feels like 2 months really and its so nice to know I have many weeks still to go.
Yesterday I took it easy and toured around Saigon in general. The Presendential Palace was quite pleasant and it seems quite scary see the tanks still there that actually rolled through the gates back in 1975.
However, I then took a trip across the Saigon River to one of many, I understand, of Ho Chi Minhs Palaces. This was really very nice and informative although being Tet not very busy which was nice for me.
(TeT is chinese New Year).
Then went to a famous 19th century Temple. This is quite amazing and overpowering, you feel a quite humbled really and it is nice to make an offering to win that Lottery or Nirvana or whatever you so desire.
I thought you would like to see what $4½ a day can buy you in terms of room space.
So as i gotta quite a stonking hangover from too much mixing of Vino last night I'll catch up with you all later.
Ciao & take care
(Off to Hanoi this Sunday.)
