Day 17 Dalat

We took a City Tour today, visiting a monastery by cable car, the Summer Palace, a waterfall which had a small roller coaster down the hill to where it was located, and a few other places. All in all, an enjoyable day and met a nice lady from Sydney, Audrey.

Stray had a massage by someone from the Blind Centre. He has found them to be the best value and quality. They have the centres in nearly every large town and city, and not just in Vietnam.

For dinner we went to Dung's friends place who rents student accommodation. The Vietnamese version of a Studio Apartment. Very small but functional.

Eight of us (Ms Dung, Mr Trường, Phương, Ms Anh, Linh, Dương, Stray and I) sat around a small table and enjoyed one of the best meals I have had so far in Vietnam. Of course the good company made all the difference.

Hot pot, which is a pot filled with a soup base, on a burner in the centre of the table and into it goes shrimp, squid, beef and vegetables. Poured over some's DELICIOUS :) Finishing the evening with a drink at a local juice cafe.
