The beach

The beach of Da Nang is looooong and UNcrowdy. With 30 km of sands there is plenty of space for everyone. Even though we haven’t seen anyone cleaning the main part of the city beach yet – it’s mostly clean and there are many crabs there that dig small holes. However if you step aside from the main beach the situation is different and it’s heart-braking to see these lovely beaches with trash piles all over.

The sand is very very nice to walk on and even drive on! Local fishermen drive their bikes and motorbikes on the stripe where the waves meet sand. We have even seen teenagers playing football on the wet hard-packed sand. So having our stroller with us on the beach is really not a problem. The problem is the baby, who doesn’t want to be in there. ;)

Local fishermen deserve a separate attention. But if we only had a penny for every second of the attention they pay to us we would be bathing in the money right now. :) But they are very nice to us and often show the fish or octopus they catch and kids love it. We are also very fascinated with their fishing boats – they are round and deep just like a giant soup bowl.

Baby cot? No, thank you. I do it the old way – I put my baby in the drawer. I’m not kidding. She sleeps there before she ends up in our bed. ;)

Hello from Vietnam!

We made it here! The most extreme trip I have ever done. Having three kids on the road is like trying to solve an equation with three unknown variables. These variables might get fever, throw up on the flight, get bored in the passport control line, get jetlagged, won’t eat really delicious meals on the flights, won’t sleep in the expensive hotel room… the list is long. Non the less we are here. Due to the lack of sleep I have very weak memories from the first day, except the delicious salad I ate for dinner.

The most vivid impression so far is our trip to the grocery store. What is Hollywood stars, when an European family of five including a three months old is out and about in Vietnam! We can stop the traffic down town! People drop everything and come up to us, talk to us, take pictures with our baby, touch our kid’s blonde hair, wave to us and are very very friendly!

There are a bunch of other things on the plus side, like 5 min walk to one of the most amazing beaches in the world, rather cheap food and very pleasant weather, except the rain showers from time to time, which can really get one wet. On the minus side is rather long walking distance (for kids) to the most of the fun places and attractions in the city and lizards inside the house, but we are trying to figure out the first and get used to the latest.
