The night bus from hell that proved to be worth it

Last night we boarded a night bus to the beautiful beach city of Nha Trang.  As our hotel was the last on the sleeper bus pick-up route, we didn't have many options for seats.  We made our way to the back of the bus and climbed into our narrow sleeper beds.  Out of necessity, we  made fast friends with the three (yes three) other people already packed into the tiny space, and all had a good laugh at the situation.  We made stops every few hours for bathroom breaks, trying to sleep through the heat and the aggressive horn of the massive bus.  Eleven hours later we arrived.

We took inventory of our surroundings and toured some rooms for the evening.  We settled on one just a stone's throw from the picturesque municipal beach.  Breakfast was baguettes with laughing cow and fried eggs, fresh coffee and a banana milkshake.  We look forward to spending the day at the beach and Ryan will get a dive in tomorrow.  

We hope everyone is safe and happy.  We're counting our blessings in light of the recent events in Japan.  

More updates and possibly pictures to come!
