    Is there somewhere nearby a board saying that this is the lake where the famous pilot was fished out from by the local people, saving his life avoiding his drowning, after his bombing of their power plant?

    ^Not that I recall, darling! Although, there is so much history in Vietnam. Also, so much history in Cambodia where I spent a month. Sadly, I never made it to Ho Chi Minh/Saigon.

    Reminds me of my time in Vietnam, and probably the slowest trains in the world.

    Yes, but Vietnamese trains were far slower (in my experience). The night train from Sapa to Hanoi was superb, though. Very plush, very nice.

    ^Haha, really? I found the trains in Thailand much slower. The train from Hanoi to Sapa was deathly slow, but then again I took a day train, hard seater that ended up being delayed for three hours at one of the stops. I ended up being bored out of my mind as we couldn't leave the train and I ended up showing some Vietnamese people how to play solitaire. The train wasn't overly fast mind you in Vietnam, but it seemed to slow down quite a bit, and then speed up. It was no bullet train, but I enjoyed the views and had a sleeper bunk.

    ^I took three months off of working to travel at the time, so I didn't have loads of money. I did stay in decent enough places, but not in luxury. It was only my second year living abroad, I didn't have a lot of dosh, but made the trip anyway and enjoyed every minute of it. Spent a lot more time in Thailand than any other country though. Anyway, I'm leavin the forum for awhile. Don't miss me too much, you bundle of negativity.
