Indo China – Day 23

Even though we didn’t have an alarm this morning, we still found ourselves waking up kind of early, which seems to be the norm for us these days. Not that we got out of bed, as just relaxing doing nothing can sometimes be just as good as actual sleep. Though once 9.30am rolled around, we…

Indo China – Day 22

If I thought the last overnight train was a bit of a rough sleep, well this was on another level. Firstly I still had bugs coming at me during the night, and I killed at least two more that were crawling on me, and maybe more that slipped into my bed sheet and I was…

Indo China – Day 21

This morning started pretty early, as we woke up around 5.30am, which wasn’t that bad really seeing as we were in bed so early the night before. The main thing though was Mollidy was feeling heaps better, and seeing as she had basically eaten nothing the day before, and hadn’t been able to keep down…

Indo China – Day 20

Well the night train wasn’t exactly as comfortable as we all thought, as Mollidy struggled to sleep with the noise, and though the noise wasn’t that bad for me, I still woke up every 30 minutes. It was also pretty uncomfortable for my bad hip, but it was still an experience. We also have two…

Indo China – Day 19

Well, we were right, the god damn roosters woke us all up around 4.30am, which is always fun, though I did manage to keep sleeping in between the loud calls, and when Mollidy and myself officially got up it was 5.30am when we ventured out to the toilets. At 7.30am though the group all gathered…

Indo China – Day 18

This morning wasn’t such an early start as our bus wasn’t going to leave till 8.30am, so it was nice getting a bit more sleep, though I woke up with a bit of an upset stomach from the dinner the night before, as did Mollidy. We showered and ventured out into the streets, and we…

Indo China – Day 17

As today was going to be mostly a day off, as the next leg of the trip didn’t technically kick off till 6pm orientation, meant we had most of the day free to do what we felt like. We were going to do the Cu Chi Tunnels, which was a Vietcong base during the war…

Indo China – Day 16

This morning started a little earlier than expected, as I woke up at about 5.40am, and because I thought the alarm was going off at 6, I got up, though left Mollidy to sleep. When I got back to bed, Mollidy woke and asked what time it was, and I said the alarm was about…
