During our trip north some of the hotels were more memorable than others. At Dong Hoi we had a great room with a comfortable bed and a bar in the lobby. At Vinh Bernie and I had to talk about it for a while before we could remember it clearly. The hotel there was very good at "eye wash" (make it look good) the room was not worth writing home about and the bed took a half a pint of whiskey to make it bearable....other than that it was great.
After our stay at Vinh we traveled to the village where Ho Chi Minh was born. Everything is lovingly taken care of by the villagers there. I got one of the green helmets men like to wear in the north and Bernie bought a wide brimmed hat.
This was just before our climb up and down and in and out of Phong Nha cave. When I saw the sign I could not resist.
On my next entry I will include pictures of our stop at Ha Long bay. I did not see you there. It is just as well, it was a cloudy rainy day. Ha Long bay is beautiful regardless of the weather. Well you know what they say......next vacation visit beautiful Viet Nam.
