we are now in Nha Trang so thought i'd copy some of an email & save typing twice!
We went out tonite & wanted to go downtown so we waved a taxi down & he pulled across the traffic & cut a motorbike off, the bike skidded & the guy fell off in the middle of the road. The taxi driver didn’t even get out & seeif the guy was ok. He just sat there yelling out to us - taxi? We couldn’t believe it. The guy nearly got run over it was awful. i was nearly sick. So we decided not to get in his taxi & walked the other way. Further down the road we waved down another taxi & got in it but the other driver waited up the road to see where we went & then got on the 2 way to our driver & babbled, our driver was laughing & i asked him was it the other guy & told him what had happened but he pretended not to understand me. He drove & drove & we finally got there & it cost us 60,00VND so we payed him. I should have known we were being ripped but i didn’t know where we were & he dropped us in a street not sure where. Anyway we shopped for a couple hrs & walked around & decided to go back to hotel & have dinner here somewhere. Taxi back cost us 33,000Vnd! we were so ripped off, but you ,live & learn!
Anyway we are going sightseeing tomorrow if its not so hot, it was stinking here today thought i was going to melt. Had to come back to hotel & shower & have a nap.
Not a great start to our time here but i'm sure tomorrow will be better.
