Day 47 – Back to the big city

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Today was another travel day as I went from Mui Ne back to Ho Chi Minh City by bus.

A 6 hour bus ride – ick.

I actually watched both Hunger Games movies on it so the time passed pretty nicely.

After leaving at 9am I arrived back to the backpacker district of HCMC around 3pm.  The place I was staying at last time I was here was fully booked so I booked a place right next door.

This way I knew exactly where I was headed once I disembarked from the bus.

I walked the two blocks over to my hostel, checked in and headed straight out to a little place Anna and I had eaten a great meal at on our last night together.

I had some chicken and a yummy dish of some sort of fish mixture cooked on bell peppers.  Both dishes with rice and a pop set me back a whopping 55,000 dong ($3).

A few hours later I went out for dinner – a beef noodle dish for 35,000 dong ($1.75) – and of course some ice cream cause really what day is complete without ice cream.

And that was the day.

Really nothing to report – I’m just ready for my Vietnam leg to be over and start my next adventure in Thailand at the Elephant Nature Park.
