The afternoon at the beach

After sleeping the morning away, lunch and some blogging, I finally checked into my hotel.  Nice clean, new room with no real window to speak of and a safe that was not attached to anything.  Spent the afternoon walking the streets of Nha Trang and investigating the array of scuba shop for tomorrows adventure – Diving in Vietnam.  I had reserved a diving excursion with a company called Rainbow Divers ($75 for breakfast, Lunch, transportation to and from the boat, the boat, all equipment and two dives), but the name made me want to check out a few other options.  I ended up with another outfit offering the same for $35 and I did not even need my PADI card!  PS: on the Rainbow place – It turned out to be ok just more money.

No blogging from my hotel – the bandwidth was too slow, a typical problem in Vietnam come to find out.

I know no one give a shit, but today was 85 and sunny!  Dinner as great too.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…

    You mention two dives and all I see is a picture of you with two attractive women – did you mean to type “two divas” or did you really go scuba diving?!
