November rain at the Alamo

I pedaled over to the Alamo without submerging my feet, though they still got wet by rain. Last week's monsoon floods had given way to several sunny days but then it all started over again. After more than twenty-four hours of non-stop rain there was only a few inches of water in my narrow street. With no let-up in sight, in another twelve hours it will be knee-deep.
I went to the Alamo for a late, mid-day, breakfast. Hieu and Darrin make one of the finest western breakfasts in town, if not thee finest. Perfect eggs to order, golden fried hash-browns, baked beans since he is British, and a healthy portion of bacon if there is such a thing. Toast was optional but the meal itself was filling enough for me. The Alamo is a fine place to watch Nha Trang come alive in mid-morning and early afternoon. Unfortunately, there are more cars every year. Those and busses race through town in any weather with their speed and horns way overdone. Most traffic is still the motorbike but there are plenty of bicycles, cyclos, push-cart venders, and pedestrians roaming in the rains. The Alamo is a good spot to hang out with a camera and see what passes by out front. Once you're in it, rain is not so bad.
