This is a journal entry from my trip:
We arrived yesterday afternoon and spent the next few hours trying to figure out how to get through immigration. What a long process! We were all pretty tired so it was a relaxing afternoon and evening. I’ve been getting out on my own more often, and met a named Skeet (not sure how to spell it) from San Francisco who is touring Southeast Asia for three weeks.
Today I met some more people on a Mekong Delta tour – Eric from France, on his way back home after finishing his MBA in Australia; a couple from Sweden, here for a month or so; and Vossito from Kuala Lumpur, here with her sister and brother-in-law for Golden Week. It’s been a lot of fun meeting completely new people! I’ve fallen in love with Vietnam – it’s so laidback while looking so hectic on the outside. The weather is beautiful, the food is really good and I feel very comfortable in a country which is very foreign.
