After 3 weeks, we have left Vietnam and are now in Cambodia. We survived Tet. Though it was an interesting time to be in Vietnam, it was also challenging because almost everything shuts down – for up to 10 days. This made finding meals a bit difficult! But, the cities were decorated to the hilt which made for a festive atmosphere.
We took a boat trip from Saigon to Phnom Penh, which took a total of 3 days. It wasn’t quite what we expected, but parts of it were marvelous. Watching the sun set over the Mekong while gently floating along was magical. And, the sunrise wasn’t too shabby, either.
And, we are surviving the heat! While our friends back in Seattle are snowed in, we are adjusting to temperatures in the mid-90’s.
