No kidding. Not only is it 30 feet from the beach, not only can I hear the waves as I sleep, not only is there a hammock 10 feet from the door, but there’s a disco ball and colored lighting in my room. Don’t ask me why, but there you have it.
I’m in Muine, which is about halfway between Siagon and Nha Trang for those of you following along at home, relaxing and swimming and reading about diving. I’ll be moving on in a few days, and hope to be in Hanoi before Tet (Chinese New Year), which will cripple the city beginning on February 1.
Before I came up here, I went out to the Mekong Delta for a few days, during which I had no internet access, so to those of you whose email went unanswered, I’m not dead and I’ll write you back soon, promise. Also, I’ve got some thoughts to collect about the Delta, which was a thought-provoking and educational experience. More on that to come. For now, it’s time to sit by the water and drink some vodka, and maybe start a club in my room. I do have both volumes of Lazy Dog…. Woohoo!
