In to ‘Nam

July 1st, 2009

Crossing in to Vietnam was an interesting affair, undoubtedly the most isolated border crossing I’ve ever made. It also rained and rained and rained, which is no good when you’ve got a 70 kilo backpack and are wearing shorts and flip flops.

After the formalities we headed to Chau Doc, a small town with nothing of any real interest which was actually kind of interesting as there was nothing for tourists so it felt more real. A quick walk around town was followed by a meal on a floating platform over the Mekong. Very cool location, beautiful skies but loads of mosquitoes and a tendency to lose your food everytime a boat went by!
