Received a couple of texts off Dad today. First one said he'd been trying to get postcards but the hotel was in a "non-tourist" area and he'd not managed to get any. However a taxi scooter was dispatched and came back with some.
His plan for the day was to go to Cat Ba Island but as there were no ferries he planned on hiring a boat. However he managed to get on a boat with a tour group and headed out to the Islands. He text to say at 5.30 pm that we was still on the boat. Not heard anymore ... hope it wasn't a pirate boat he went out on !
Just noticed that we are fast approaching 20,000 hits on the blog. I think we've clocked up 1,000 while he's been out in Vietnam. Thanks folks for visiting his blog. Dad will be right chuffed.
