Spent the day doing a bit of touring and more eating.
Went to the Killing Fields, more for my companions benefit. I did a good tour a few years ago, but was good to go back to this site. It needs a bit of money put into it. Starting to look rather drab and shabby. Visited a few other points of interest, again by Tuk-tuk. Then lunch. I then went back to accom' and the others kept touring. I was far more interest in sleeping.
then off for another buffet in the evening. The highlight though was having a Tuk-tuk driver who got lost and gave us a real back street tour, then managed to go over the main city bridge twice followed by a u-turn in a 4 lane one-way street. He wasn't hired for the trip home later in the night.
another fantastic day in Phnom Penh., except possibly for the dust and smog.
Up very early for the bus trip back to Saigon. An excellent bus turned up, had aircraft type seats. The most comfortable I've ever been on and the border crossing was amazing. All done in 15 minutes. So an excellent trip to Saigon, a siesta in the afternoon in preparation for another party tomorrow
Sat' party was huge. Celebrating 150 years of LaSan presence in Vietnam. 700 guests & 300 helpers. Really entertaining. Like watching one of those Chinese movies with a thousand actors.
Heading back to Da Lat on the late Sunday evening bus. Have a chance of a sleep that way. Not sure that it will help the teaching later on Monday. Not a worry at the moment.
