Welcome to our 10X10ft Sparkling Princess Cave. I (Risa) admit it, once we were in our room and the helper guys had left, I totally broke down and cried for awhile. It was a bit too much for me to take in after traveling for about 24hrs straight. All I can say is at least it had good cable - I was even able to watch some Phineas and Ferb on the crazy Asian Disney channel with strange shows set all over Asia.
Our first meals in Vietnam ended up ok actually, though maybe a bit more expensive than we were planning on at first as we ate in a restaurant instead of a small shop. Michael went out to eat first as I was falling asleep by 5pm, and he got a seafood soup that he really really loved. He said it was awesome except for the small pieces of shell you had to watch for. I had a bowl of Phu (pronounced fuh), the traditional soup dish here that has a broth base, rice noodles, some veggies like onions mostly, and some meat. I didn't eat a lot of the meat but it was really good soup, just what I needed to relax my nerves.
