My friend Thanh in Nha Trang

My friend from Saigon sent me several photos of a recent vacation she took in Nha Trang. I am jealous. In the old days Nha Trang was an excellent place to get some rest, which I sorely need now. Before I left Vietnam for Thailand I used to go to Nha Trang as often as possible – but it was getting more and more touristy so I liked it less as time went on. It was losing its quiet charm. I did, however, start liking Phu Quoc Island in its place. When I go on vacation I want slowness. I want to hear the grass grow. I read and sleep. I know it sounds extremely boring but it does me a world of good.
