Hoi An: Rural and Urban

From serene early morning countryside to hot afternoon shoperama

sunny 34 °C

We all rose early this morning, hired bicycles (1 GBP for all three, no insurance, no deposits) and cycled out into the countryside to try and find the 'real Vietnam'. We discovered lovely friendly people, serene countryside, some wildlife... and black teeth!

Then back home for a late breakfast and a swim in the Hotel pool (good move to get a hotel with a pool, it keeps the kids occupied for hours!).

Emma in heaven when the three 'girls' went for a pedicure at a local Nail Bar - a stark contrast to this morning.

On our 'contrast' theme which is constantly popping up during our travels, here is a photo of the view behind Jackie as she sits at the pool...

...and here is the view in front of Jackie as David orders a book off Amazon for Matthew to be delivered to Whale Island, our next stop, 12 hrs south of here.
