Vietnam-Morning Dalat

Yesterday, was the last day in Hoi An, and I didn't do too much. I took a long walk through the old town, and looked at the various shops. I had lunch at the market, and then had another lunch across the street from the hostel of Pho.


I waited a few hours for the 5:30 bus to Dalat-which was approximately a 13 hour ride. A small van picked me and several others up at various hostels around town, and drove us to the sleeper bus.

The bus was the same as the last long trip-beds on upper and lower levels, and three across. This time, I had a better seat-I had an upper bed once again, but it was near the window, so I can at least lean to one side without worrying about falling over, and I don't think there was a bathroom on the bus, so nobody came by and jostled me.

After about an hour-the bus stopped for a bathroom break-although there was no bathroom. Everyone, including the girls onboard who had to go, did it on the side of the road.

A few hours later, we stopped at a rest area for food, drinks and bathroom as well.

I actually think I got less sleep on this ride There we're bumps everywhere on the road. I felt every bump. I still had my big camera big between my knees. There was a small pillow, but it dropped to the floor sometime during the ride-and I didn't feel like climbing down the ladder to pick it up. I had to wait till the bus made a stop to pick it up (the bus made random stops for some reason-I am not sure if anyone got on or off).
