Mui Ne, Vietnam

Mui Ne is the place to be if you want to wind down and enjoy the beach on the eastcoast of Vietnam. Flo and I had separate seats on the bus, and he ended up next to a Vietnamese salesman going to a town near by.

Nha Trang

Getting all dressed up in Hoi An, it was time to hit town. So I bought a busticket to Nha Trang for six dollars and climbed aboard. The seat next to me was occupied by a smiling guy from Switzerland who was officialy '23' years old, but unofficialy '21'. Like me, he was travelling alone in indochina - (but not like me) hoping to pick up a job somewhere or another working as a chef.

Getting robbed

Hanoi. Love it or leave it. So I left it. Too much noise, too much traffic, too many people wanting your attention - not to even mention some of - or better still - all your money..

Why Hanoi is a jungle

...let me count the ways. No, seriously - after China, Hanoi was a bit of a shock. Having been to Beijing and Shanghai - two of the most populous places on earth (there are soooo many chinese!) - I was expecting Hanoi to be a walk in the park.

Border Crossing China to Vietnam

Hanoi Vietnam

I thought China was a jungle, but apparently that was nothing compared to Hanoi! There is a train leaving Beijing twice weekly heading for Hanoi. While spending a week in Yangshou, I had booked the ticket through china's official tourist buro (CITS), getting on the train in Guilin. My visa for China was tipping it's 30th (and final) day of me leagally staying in the country, and we would arrive at the Vietnamese border sometime past midnight - officially making me outwear my welcome by say... 15 minutes?

Hanoi, Vietnam

Contrary to what my blog show of updates, I am actually moving along! I arrived in Hanoi yesterday morning from Guilin in China. Today I am on my way to Halong Bay, known to many as secret hideaway of Villains (..stroking cats?) in old James Bond movies. The bay is known for its pinnacle mountains, caves and quiet green sea. I am spending two nights and three days there, first night on a boat - the second on Catba island. If you don't hear from me soon, you know where I am - making evil schemes for taking over the world... ;)

Thanx for comments made in guestbook, also the private ones!

  • He insisted.... ;-)

    Check out the website of my brother, Ib Knutsen! He is currently working at a UN office in Nairobi, Kenya - and he is a bit more advanced as a webmaster than I am. You will find photos, videos, essays and articles and loads of tips and tricks.

    One of his latest projects was the making of a rap video for Nairobi rappers - definetly worth checking out!
