Ho Chi Minh City

The least eventful blog post so far!

Well the bus to Ho Chi Minh City was a hassle to begin with. We got on were ordered to specific beds which were alright. Then told we should be on the morning bus, get dropped of at the office to check, get put back on the bus and then get worse beds. I was in the top middle and in the right place so that I get AC constantly blasting cold air at my face. I used the small blanket to keep my face warm like an arctic survivor.

As I woke 1 year older on the cold bus we were dropped of fairly near the hotel area. so we were able to find decent room just as the hotels were opening. Then we spent the next few hours waiting for UCAS track to load so we could find out which university we were going to go to. After several refreshes UCAS eventually loaded and I found out I had got into Liverpool (my insurance). Rob had been rejected from Cambridge and Warrick was pending (and still is!!!).

As a result my 19th Birthday and getting into Liverpool celebrations were delayed. We just had a curry and I had a couple of drinks.

Yesterday, Rob spent most the time on the computer and I just chilled around the local area of our room, the hotel internet room and the internet cafe with skype. It was very uneventful with Warrick taking their time. Eventually at 11ish we decided to get ready for bed.

Suddenly Rob got a phone call from his mum saying he had been offered a clearing place at Bath for acceptance on Monday. Coincidentally at that moment England balled Australia out.

me: "Now we have something to drink for"

Rob: "I would but you haven't got your clothes on and are in bed"

"I can put some on"


And so we headed out at 11:30, ignoring that the hotel appeared to be closing up to GO2 rooftop bar, where we proceeded to have beer a mixer and tequila shots. We then headed to the hotel to find it had been gated and behind the looked gates were metal shutters. Eventually I found some rocks and we threw them through the gate at the shutter until we were let in.

Today was uneventful due to tiredness but we booked ourselves on a Vietnamese cooking course tomorrow morning. Tonight we will go out before 11:30 and hopefully not get locked out! :)
