i ve to write in english for our English speaker friends all around the world.
so if i can do it without a dictionary , my french readers could understand ...
after few days in big cities like Saigon or Phnom Penh, we leave the land for the sea. and the pollution for the air.
a long way toward the happiness of fresh air and beach time.
we stayed 2 days in Mui Ne , little fisherman village near the south china sea, first we wanted to stay more but the hotel and the area were not so good. so we kept going to the highlands , in Da Lat , little town in the mountains . the weather is cooler ,even cold at night.
we savour a lot of good dishes here in Viet-Nam , like spring rolls , fried chiken ,fried beef with a lot of different sauce and also with lemon grass , so good.
the life here is totally different , as Vavi said , "it is another culture", ok but sometimes is a weird culture.
i think we look stupid to them but for me it s the opposite. ( we re just a dollar note with legs)
the way they drive is worse than in Roma, can u imagine ! the priority on the road is for the vehicle who s the bigger claxon.
they are all crazy on the road , but today we were so brave that we rent 2 motorbikes to go to the elephant waterfalls , 30km far from here... waou ! outside the city is easier to drive even if cars , trucks and motos go in the middle of the road. it was (really) better than yesterday when we took bikes from the hotel (free bikes) to go to other waterfalls , only 5 km from here.
wrong idea , cause the way to go was down the mountain so imagine the way back ....crazy mother fu..er idea by me .and didn t even see the waterfalls cause it s an attraction for kids and rich Vietnamese tourists.
that s it .we ve enjoyed our holidays , for the moment . see you soon on the way .
and send a lot of comments .
love from Shantaram.
