The plan today is to internet search for voluntary projects, and then go into town to get a present for ms jenny (our hotel owner) who has said we can stay in her house in siagon when we head back next week for free!
Julianne, sophie, laura and I have decided we are going to go and do some volunteering... we are looking into orphanages and community projects at the moment in the central highlands area of Nam. And sophie and I are also thinking about visting the Friendship village where victims of Agent Orange (the acid attacks during the war) live - even 3rd generation their children are deformed... The West is so protected from all the reality of it.
On a more positive note:
Went to a crazy fish night market last night. there were loads of these weird rainbow sea slug things and massive mutant prawn lobsters!
bought myself my first souvenirs - a shell inlaid wooden box, comb, and mirror for about £1. we also all got leather band round our wrists...now we look like proper grubbly little travellers.
Been hanging out on our beach a lot, just reading my kindle and chatting. I'm the only one not to have got sunburnt yet!....
Back to researching now. Bye for now
