Poolside notes, from a small resort in Vietnam
March 24-25, 2010 – 454-455 – Mui Ne, Vietnam
Mui Ne is a tiny resort town on a Vietnamese beach. The beach is nothing much but every guest house boasts itself as a resort, no matter how small or large, and nearly every one has a divine swimming pool that is too inviting to refuse.
We spent two glorious days lounging in the sun beside a glittering pool and taking a swim when we got too hot or too restless. One afternoon we shook our bones awake and took a rented motorbike up to see the dunes.
Though they are nothing spectacular, they are a neat site if you have a free half hour. If nothing else, the ride out of town is a fun endeavor in itself. Along the highway farther out of town are racks and racks of drying fish which are used to make Vietnam’s famous fish sauce.
We have been thoroughly enjoying ourselves relaxing in a tiny garden like resort, trying not to think about applying for jobs or looking for apartments.
