Alice and I

We managed to get 10 hours sleep last night which was much needed by both of us. Alice's shoulder is moving more freely now and her rash is going down. We have decided that it was an allergy to the mud!
Talking of mud, I washed all of Alices clothes in the bath this morning. I think half of Mai Chau was on her shorts and t shirt from Tuesday!! They're looking and smelling much better now.
We have watched Toy Story 2 and 3 and then ventured out trying to find Ben some flip flops as he only bought his walking boots. It would appear that mens feet only grow as big as size 8 here !!! Alice bought a skirt, then we came back in half cooked to go on FB etc. We have found somewhere different to eat later, and its not the place selling bbq'd baby chicks on the street round the corner - YUCK!
A strange man selling books would n't leave us alone earlier, we had to be quite stroppy with him. Everywhere we went he followed us.
We may venture to a museum tomorrow, it is quite a long walk though so depends on the weather and toilet requirements!!
We are both feeling more chipper today as have chatted on FB to friends and Baz phoned me last night, he was worried about me and wants to put us in a 5* hotel, just imagine! Need to stay here though as it has a been risk assessed and red tape firmly in place! I just love the Hilton toiletries though, oh and the pool! I think the rest of the group would be a bit miffed too as they sleep over cows, pigs, roosters, lovely toilets, shall I go on ??
I will sign off now and let you know if we make it to the museum tomorrow or not.
Love and hugs to all, Biz and Alice xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Love and respect to all those still trekking, let's hope that the weather has improved somewhat. X

  3. Glad to hear that you are alright but sorry about the weather - its pretty wet here too, but obviously not quite so monsoon like! You really must be getting to see the real Vietnam. Trying to track you but the villages on the itinerary don't always match the gps point. All the best, thinking of you all, keep well, love Gareth, Rhian, Rhys & Rhodri Parry XX

  4. Thank you Bizzle for washing all of Alice's clothes, I am glad you are both on the mend! xxxxx
