Karen's journi adventures through Vietnam !!


29 October 2017

My last supper before and the morning of my departure. So sad. Had a great massage at the Chinese airport! Hung back while waiting to board the plane because I didn’t want to leave.
Going off of 2 hours of sleep. Joined a bunch of fun folks for a Mekong Delta tour to Ben Tra.

28 October 2017

Arrived in Saigon. My hotel was Fusion Suites. Got a hold of Ahn, an Old friend and a jack of all trades. We hung out at his bar, rdid nitrous balloons and then went clubbing VIP style.
The real pub with a cold beer, inner tubing down the lazy river in Bon Lai valley, Duck Stop and delicious bun xeo. Plane to Saigon sunset.
Pub with the cold beer - take 1. What / no inner tube. That’s odd.
