Nha Trang

After Hue, we took the train down to Nha Trang - where Leszek had the infamous operation on his foot. We left as soon as possible, since this place is a beach resort like any other: It could be in spain, italy, France - it's expensive, overloaded and with no peticular charm. (sorry!)
While Leszek took care of his foot, I tried to make the best of the time: Two great dives around the islands and playing beach volleyball with dozens of excitedly shouting vietnamese: After playing one ENTIRE game in the belief that i am playing with locals, something dazzled me: One by one, they gradually switched from vietnamese into talking SWEDISH to each other, then began adressing me in perfect English along with a thick swedish accent. It turned out that the guys were swedish tourists with vietnamese parents. Weird encounters.

This gets better and better...
literary devices like flashback and foreshadowing...
Lescek slits his foot open, goes to siggraph, then gets operated...
hehe...
The photos are great too!
Any sketch journals?

yes I know ... we are experts in elliptical narration. And right when you expect it the least we fill in the missing parts.

sketch journals ... uhm ... only the one of the little girl ;)
I stayed overnight on a small mekong island where I met a great family with 5 children, age 5 - 11 and we ended up doing a sketch round it the authentic "David Maas" manner! It was great, except we were sitting in the middle of a fruit orchard and had to stop at the point where we couldn't see our pencils anymore...

And yes ... parasite pictures ... A big disappointment: since we were tackled by heavy rain showers we had to cancel the much anticipated night hike in the "leech National Park". but instead i will post some other pics that will hopefully satisfy your desire for the untasteful.
