Today we are moving towns, in an hour we're getting a bus to Hue where we'll spend the night and get a bus to the Vietnam/Laos border the next day. Our visa runs out in 4 days so we want to get there in plenty of time to avoid getting ripped off because we're last minute.
We've had a really enjoyable last couple of days. Our clothes that we've had made are excellent. Taz got his 2 pairs of trousers, a shirt and matching tie and I got my jeans and dress. Everything fits excellently after a few alterations! It's hard to find clothes to fit as well as these (especially me trying to find jeans!) and the materials good too so you can't complain. Taz's trousers are cashmere wool stuff, whatever that means! My dress is thai silk. So we're sorted for Rick and Kellys wedding in August! We posted everything today for 10 quid. It'll be home in 3 weeks.
We have been enjoying everyday life in Hoi An. There's plenty of food places and hotels that are within our budget and the drinks are ridiculously cheap. Last night we were just sat in a little restaurant chatting to a German man and an Irish couple and managed to drink quite a bit and the bill was so small. The rum you get is Vietnamese and nice enough to drink straight, they're 40p and you get a small wine glass full, so we had some of them as well as the 18p beers. It's a very relaxing place at night, and because it's the 1st May today they had celebrations in the street last night. They had an art exhibition area lit with hundreds of small candles and it looked really nice. Kids were doing martial arts demonstrations. People were playing all sorts of instruments. All in all, an excellent last night in lovely Hoi An.
Bye bye! Jemma and Taz x
