View Great Escape to the East! on Tam-Jo's travel map.
After some more fittings (we are definitely getting our monies worth from these tailors, and getting on their nerves in the process!) we rented some bicycles and cycled to the beach. It was a very pretty ride and the beach was beautiful! After a walk along by the sea, and watching an epic parasailing fail, where a couple got stranded out at sea (!), we headed back towards town. We stopped at a lovely little shack by the river for some gorgeous lunch! I had an entire squid stuffed with pork and a satay sauce... it is literally the best thing I've ever eaten! YUM! Ice cream followed and then we all headed back to town.
We invaded Felix and Sarah's room for a few hours before having to say a very, very sad farewell to them! We will not be seeing them again on our travels! But we hope to abuse their hospitality for OktoberFest later this year! Safe travels guys!
Now we're on the night train to Nha Trang and it is horrible and dirty (and we have already argued with the train staff a little bit!), but at least we have the cabin to ourselves! Whoop!
