Hanoi, Vietnam

Still alive.. dont worry!!!

Sorry for lack of updates for past two days but Ive been either wrecked from late night Jazz Club sessions (thats what happens when you meet up with German girls and Swedes!!) or have been trying to organise my plane tickets so that I get more time in South East asia.

Interesting things that happened recently...

- Met a guy from Cork who is working with Trailfinders in Dublin, so I kinda let loose my anger about dealing with Trailfinders.. If yer reading this, sorry no offence was intended!!!!

- Ive decided that I love south-east asia so much that Im gonna stay an extra 2 months, so Ill be arriving into Oz in June instead! I tried to get my ticket to Hong Kong changed to Singapore but Trailfinders demanded I pay 100 dollars.. no way ho-say! So Im still going to Hong Kong, but itll be in June so SARS will hopefully be gone by then.

- Other stuff... found great little clubs in Hanoi, met lotsa cool folks, went to the "Hanoi Hilton" (a prison where all the american POWs were kept... its funny to look at the picture captions "Here is a happy US soldier receiving presents from soldiers despite atrocities caused by imperialists...")

Ive also found a unique solution to the picture upload prob. Ive managed to get a place to burn all 18 rolls of film onto one cd and they came out great. Im trying to upload a few more photos but THE CAFE IS TOO SLOW!!!.

Im going to try to upload the pics in the early morning instead... keep an eye out... I may get to upload 200 if the speed is good enough.

Tommorrow eve Im going to be heading to Laos and I also need time to plan where else in South-East Asia I shall go for the next 60 days!! Malaysia? Myanmar? Cards are all on the table at this stage!
