Vietnamese Iced Coffee

October 26, 2009

When Nate and I first arrived in Vietnam, we made a conscious decision to stop drinking coffee. After a few days of headaches from a lack of caffiene, this was going great. Then, my birthday rolled around. It was 8am and we were sitting in a classroom watching DVDs on diving. I made the mistake […]

Buses in Vietnam

October 25, 2009

Buses in Vietnam are the cheapest and likely the easiest way of getting around the country. Similar to classes on a train, there are levels of bus to choose from as well. A normal bus is pretty normal, like a charter bus in America, though never with a toilet. When I have the choice, I’ll […]

Nha Trang – I love this place

October 17, 2009

We’re currently in Nha Trang, and man, do I love this place. The first photo in the slideshow is the view from our hotel room, which is costing us a steep $8/night. We spent the first day on the beach, relaxing in beach chairs under a big bamboo umbrella. Tough life, but someone’s got to […]

The tailors in Hoi An

October 16, 2009

We splurged a bit when we got to Hoi An. This ancient port city is well know for it’s tailored clothing, fine suits being one of the favorite items. With a recommendation from Quy, and no real expectation for what would be involved, we walked to a chosen shop and made an appointment for the […]

Hoi An

October 16, 2009

These photos are from Hoi An‘s Old Town and a nearby beach. The Old Town has been around for centuries and has Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese influences. We thought that Hue flooded badly, but Hoi An is the city that really gets the water during the rainy season. There are some photos in here of […]
