Hue to Hoi An

overcast 24 °C

We are now in Hoi An.
We did the over night train from Hanoi to Hue on Sunday night.
I am so not a fan of these over night trains but it is a really cheap way to get to places.
Hue was nothing too exciting if you are not brave enough to go by motobike (as they say in Vietnam) to the tombs. They are aways out but I have been told they are amazing.
Marc and I did one of our longest walks in Hue. We went to the Forbidden city (Purple city). You could just imagine what a sight it would have been to see in its time.

The next day in the morning we caught a bus to Hoi An. It is very quite compared to all the places we have been. Not as many motobikes. We booked a cooking class today that we will be doing on the 19th. Tomorrow we are sorting out tailors (Em and Simon, the b'day money that you gave me will come in handy here). Next day we are going to rent a motobike and go for a ride out of town to see the countryside.
We will be leaving Hoi An on the 20th, when we will be heading to the Delta and than to Phu Quoc Is..
Oh my god, time sure fly's when you are having fun...

Love Marc & Em xxx

PS. We have not seen the sun, moon or any stars since we left Brisbane. (how scary is that)

Wow! Sure sounds like an adventure! Can't wait to see what you get at the tailors... life cruising along here. We have 10 (working!) days until we are on holidays so very excited! Henrico's Mum will be here in 16 or 17 days and then life will get full-on showing her everything in Brisbane. We are having an Australian Day party next Friday so missing you heaps.
Keep having fun and we loook forward to your next entry. Loved the pics by the way!

Hi Guys, pleased to hear you are still enjoying yourselves (as if!!!). Marc, the gridiron recorded OK but this weekends lot will have to be on our hard drive, only 8% left on yours?? I thought there would be plenty.

We had Ned & the girls & Simon & Emma around on Monday night for Ned's birthday. Trevor had to work back, so couldn't make it. We had CJ's pasta and of course Mum overordered. Abi had her regular bath on the weekend (as did Mum!), her & Nelson are getting along fine.

Look forward to the next instalment,

Love, Col & Maryanne

sounds like you are having a great time. How different the country is as you go to the different regions. Things are good here the little girl is good now sort of knows what NO means she and Nelson are getting on well. Loving the morning walk and so is my waist line. Had nails done today. Suzanne has had the nose op she came through it well however she will have her colourful tail to tell i think I was the surrogate Mum. The nose looks grat and through all her insurities it looks good.

Have agreat time hope the clothes work out well
Love Mum & Dadxxxxxx
