Day Fifteen

Something Awesome: Arrived in Hoi An - a beautiful old town famous in Vietnam for it's tailoring. All the buildings in the old town are all mustard coloured and the whole town has a very strangely European feel.
Something Crap: Weather hasnt been too great and we arrived in Danang and got a taxi to Hoi An in the rain.
Something we did: Checked into Phuoc An hotel in Hoi An and had the first hot shower that I've had in a few days. GLORIOUS. Also got lured into a few too many tailor-shops.... results pending... :)
Something random: You can find draught beer here for approx R1.50 (0.20$)
Something we ate: Fried Wonton. A traditional favourite.  Made from rice paper and it comes with vegetables and sauce on top. yum.

che: wow. that beer only costs 4000 dong.
blake: no, its 40 000 dong - same like most places.
che: no. it very clearly says 4000 dong.
blake: it can't be. there must be a mistake
che: no. i'm pretty sure it says 4000 dong at that restaurant too. and 3000 dong over there.
blake: that's R1.20.
che: i know.
blake: whoa..........
