Well as in normal fashion, after a heavy night out on the beer ... we always need a recovery/hangover day ... and today was no exception!

After way too many dodgy cocktails lastnight ..... today was a day that we couldn't even spend reading .. as that seemed like too much of a chore! It was mainly spent in bed .... with a brief walk down into the town in the late afternoon .. just to get out of the hotel for a while. Mind you .. the walk was a tough task in itself! We did manage to grab something to eat down town and that helped a little .... but not enough!

When we got back to the hotel we decided that seeing as we had been so quiet over the last few days that we booked a tour to a place called 'My Son' for tomorrow. 'My Son' is an old ancient site that was built between the 4th centuary and 13th centuary and used as a sacred place for burials and worship by the people. Now it is a set of ruins after the American bombings during the war in Vietnam (It did survive several wars over the previous 400 years without bombing!) and it has become another tourist attraction in Vietnam!

Well I supose that was a semi-fruitful day then in Vietnam!! Tomorrow we hope to resume the travel experience again!
