It's been one whole year since Sofie and I had our marriage ceremony in Hoi An and we decided to get out of Dodge and head into the wild Mekong Delta, as far as the bustling Cambodian town of Chau Doc. Chau Doc was a real breath of fresh air in more ways than one. For one, the people are friendly, happy. They're border people like just like me (Warren). It's a long way from here to Monaghan but something in the ordinariness of the place hit home. It's not a tourist town except for the pilgrims who flock to nearby Sam Mountain (we didn't bother!) We stuck to relaxing and ambling and reading and eating to religious extremes that would be considered fundamentalist in other circumstances.
So we splashed out on some four or five star luxury - it being our first (paper?) anniversary. We were well looked after by Victoria Resort in Chau Doc, Had we sent my mum a postcard it would have read: "Food great, weather great, massage enervating, pool great to languish by. Wish you were here." The only downside was far too many hours in the hire bus on extremely boring Vietnamese National Highway
1A. How will we beat this short break from the Saigon chaos? Only time will tell.
