The weekend off

The weekend has finally come.  We took a bus to Nah Trang which is about 4 hours by bus south.  The trip was going well until we hit a backup due to an accident.  The delay was about 45 minutes, but could have lasted several hours.

We arrived at our hotel again on the beach and settled in.  Some went to the market and bought pearls which are cultured in the area. 

This was followed by dinner at a French restaurant with a fliaming dessert drink that was shared.

The adventure begins

We flew from Saigon to Quy Nhon after a night layover to try to rest our internal clocks.  The clouds that we flew over made for some interesting scenery.  We were greeted on landing with flowers by the local heath officials.  Our hotel is right on the beach with fishing vessels right out the door.
