Reporting from Mui Ne

CW Martin, disturbing as we were welcomed by someone who suddenly talked to us loudly, telling us that the driver is willing to take us to the hotel with 3 USD, but if if we pay 2 USD we can walk to our hotel by ourselves... Stunned!!! Stupified! because he is just a passenger of the minivan too.

Found out that is how Vietnamese talk.

When we stop over at Hue, we had our very 1st Vietnamese milk coffee. When we were served with small cup of coffee with milk, the coffee is only one quarter of the small cup. We thought they going to pour hot water. So we wait... we wait... No hot water.. Instead she gave us ice. Then she she teached us how to drink by using her hand to grab the ice and put into the cup. The moment we drnk the coffee..... WOW! Nice, thick but not bitter. It is smooth and yummy. We drink it in a dirty coffee shop, so it tasted more deliecious than normal coffee. It is not just coffee. It is coffee with sweat.

Currently resting in hotel in Mui Ne. Going to Sand Dune tour and continue to sleep on bus tonight.

Btw, we smelled like cockroaches after sleeping with them and their corpse for 2 nights.

Cockroaches smell??

Always fascinating to learn about new cultures- especially when it is from the POV of someone else's culture! Thanks for the update.
