Early morning in Da Nang. I have just finished a good hotel breakfast and will soon be packing for our 9:00 a.m. departure to Hue, a three-hour car drive. Hue is the ancient capital of Vietnam and promises much in the way of history and culture.
A word or two about our hotel in Da Nang: The Ancient House Resort is very tropical and beautiful. Again, it was a cheap-o three-star, but extremely nice according to my limited experience. Each room has its own balcony that overlooks a very lush pool area with much greenery. My extra-big king-size bed had rose petals strew across the white cover - all beneath a silk canopy! The bath tub was long and very comfortable - much to the delight of my poor, sore legs that had recently trudged up and down Marble Mountain!
The Wi-fi, however, did not work in the room - forcing me to do email and blog from the lobby. I can pull up the edit page for my blog and post new entries, but the local connection will not let me pull up the actual blog - so I am sort of flying blind hoping that everything publishes the way that I intend. (Is Pa Rock's Ramble too controversial for Da Nang, Vietnam?)
Off to pack, to ride, and to walk, and walk, and walk!
