pretty reasonable as long as the weathers shit

getting behind. I'll catch up soon. Just couldnt really be bothered the least few days. And I'm a bit ashamed to have a blog so I have to write it when Kyoko's in the shower so I dont have much time
Nha Trang was actually pretty reasonable. Or it would have been if the weather was nice. The first 2 days it didnt stop raining. Theres not a lot to do there when its raining. The hotel was good enough. Staff I guess like to practice their english they were always talking to us but not really trying to sell anything for a change.
We went to the mud baths / hot springs there which were pretty fair too, once you get past the woman trying to sell you a 900k dong package, which I couldnt really see any difference other than a quick massage, from the normal 100k package. For that we got a cold mud bath, and a hot mineral bath, plus a hot, jetwash/shower to rinse the dry mud off and sue of the pool area after. We told our moto guys we'd be 4 hours I think, which was a good time frame, maybe 3 or 3.5 would be better we were pretty bored later on
I'm sure I mentioned earlier that I thought I shat myself in the bath, my diarrhea was getting a bit better by now and I didnt eat breakfast, so I thought I should be safe but I felt my stomach bubbling away when we were sat in the bath. I knew I farted but I couldnt be sure if it was wet just from the mud or cos a bit of shit had popped out, anyway I did the right thing and just kept shtum and checked myself discreetly in the shower later. Turned out it was just a wet fart.
The last couple of days we had decent weather, which obvisouly brought out all the people selling me shit again. Trying to sell sunglasses to Kyoko who's wearing some already was a big gripe, and how many times do I have to say no again. Christ, I can see what they are and your obviously either selling them or walking round with your collection which even in Vietnam seems unlikely, get out of my face. I think it was about now or Ho Chi Minh City I learnt a loud "NO I DONT WANT ANY SUNGLASSES" works better than ignoring them, maybe it embarrases them or something. Good.
We did get some decent food, though I dont understand why they have to show me its a menu and point things out to me on it, just let me read it and if it sounds good I'll order it, if I feel lke your forcing me in, I'll walk away. I had good Hanoi style noodles one day they were one of the best I had in Vietnam, and a really good ice coffee at the same place, probably not good for the diarrhea but who gives a shit. It was at a little cafe a way north from the main restaurant area and a couple of blocks in from the beach
