I tried writing this more briefly due to falling behind rather drastically in my blog writing. It's not really enough detail though so you will have to live with slower but more detailed posts after this. I've actually written six more as of the publishing of this post, but uploading photos is a real pain so I've been putting it off.
Our day started at 5am as we got ready for an early morning tour of the Mekong Delta that started at 5.30. We floated upstream to the Cai Rang floating market, where many vendors sold fruits and veggies. Our boatman, who didn't speak much English, bought us a pineapple to eat which was nice but made my mouth hurt for the next three days and made me decide no more pineapple, thank you!

We parted ways to do some shopping - Dad for sandals and I for a maxi skirt, but it soon started pouring with rain and I felt bad taking my dirty shoes through the little shops so we met up at a place called Cappuccino to eat pizza (me), pad Thai (Dad) and lemon juice (both).
Then to bed, ready to return to Saigon the next day.
