Thank you so much for my lovely birthday messages, it´s been really nice to hear from you all and to have your well wishes. :)
Yesterday I slept in late as I was actually sleeping well and then I went for a walk around Ho Chi Minh City. I went to the war museum and the reunification palace. After wandering back through the market and the parks, I went to the hotel where my tour was starting, met my room mate and had the welcome meeting. After that I went out for dinner with some friends I had made the day before and then we went swimming in the pool of a five star hotel (We weren´t staying there but no one stopped us!!). I then went for some drinks and had a very noisy Happy Birthday sung at me in several accents. Embarassing but has to be done I guess!
Today I didn´t actually get up to much. My tour group and I took a minibus from Ho Chi Minh City to Chau Doc which took over 7 hours, including a stop for lunch and a ferry over the river. When we got here, we
checked into our new hotel and then went on a boat trip on the river where we saw a floating village, met some locals and saw a spectacular sunset.
After dinner back at Chau Doc, I chatted to mum and dad on skype which was lovely and am now just about to head to bed. Night all! x
