I’ve uploaded a bunch of photos from our trip to Vietnam, click on the photo below to see them. https://500px.com/p/dougwsmith/galleries/vietnam
During our last full day in Hanoi we had a half day tour of the city with two volunteers from the organization hanoikids.
We arrived in Phu Quoc yesterday. Phu Quoc is a small island a bit west of HCMC in southern Vietnam. I wasn’t totally sure of what to expect as some of the comments I had read about the island weren’t totally flattering.
We arrived in Ho Chi Man City today to much fanfare. Actually, we arrived to a lot of other stuff - Grady’s tummy is filling up bags all over Vietnam.
We just got back from a 2 day trip to Halong Bay and I think it’s safe to say that it was a great success.
It’s 4:30am and we have about 3.5hrs left on the train I think. We all managed to get some sleep, or at least I think so.
We safely arrived in Hanoi yesterday afternoon. The “visa on arrival” scheme at the airport worked smoothly and a car from the hotel that Mercy booked was there to pick us up.
So far so good, we’ve managed to make it to the airport in one piece. Grady was touch and go for a bit, he was passing out on the skytrain.
