Last round of Vietnam photos

Nha Trang, Saigon

Ok, I think this is it on my pictures. I finally got the last cards put onto a CD so here are some more pictures!

Taken from the "bus" on the way from Quy Nhon to Jungle Beach. Note that the quotes indicate that this was the "bus" that was really a van meant for 12, but packed with about 21. Good times.

View from the main house at the Jungle Beach resort. Rain. So much rain.

My hut, separated from the beach only by a line of trees. No electricity whatsoever.

These were little shelters the guys set up to protect you from the sun. The beach was very secluded, populated every once in a while by dogs. Or cows.

Look! It's me at the Cham Towers in Nha Trang! Exciting!

More of the Cham Towers.

And to spice things up, a black and white.

Pretending to ride Mr. Thanh's bike. I never did actually ride one. Don't let the pictures fool you.

Taking a nap with a cigarette, here is the hard-working cook on our boat. He really did make fabulous food, all 4 days I was on his boat.

Mr. Thanh's wife made this dinner for us and we ate on the beach under the palm trees. Fabulous.

Pho. Best. Food. Ever.

Statue at the Taoist temple, the Jade Emperor Pagoda, Saigon.

In this pagoda, there was the "Hall of the Ten Hells" where there were mighty gruesome depictions of the fates of hell. Here is one of them.

Ok. On that note, Vietnam is finished on my blog. Kind of sad, really, but an accomplishment nonetheless. Enjoy!

Hey Lyndsey,
Thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of your pictures. Feel like I have been there myself. Good job girl!!!!!
Taking pictures nowdays is just such fun and brings back such good memories. Don't have to leave them in a bag or photo album either, which is a bonus. The cd is such a wonderful invention, isn't it!!!!
