ever wondered why the bottled coffee tastes a little off-
We've spent four hours in Chau Doc, a small port just barely across the border of Vietnam- We also spent four hours on the Mekong River which- as per the title- looks like one big watered down frapuccino.

They say coffee is a diarrhetic. And in the sad case of Sam Mcphee- he has swallowed just a little too much of the Mekong. Some could attribute his condition to the seafood last night or the litre of Malee AppleJuice- (thats my guess).

After Five trips to the bano in the morning- we stepped onto the boat- with no toilet- four hour trip- his words "pray for me!"

We've enjoyed some very tasty beef pho (noodle soup) for an early dinner and are about to head out for seconds.

I can't tell yet- if it culturally Vietnam is more reserved or they are just less friendly. I hope for the former. The Thai and Cambodians were certainly more friendly. We could just be in a more foreign area as well.

I'll hopefully get some pictures of the market tomorrow morning before we head off for Saigon.

Until next time-

We walked 25 feet off our boat and one flight of steps up- to our hotel room for the evening.
