A Hot Day in Hoi An

Woke up with a leisurely start this morning. Met the girls and went down to "Emma's" tailors, where their jackets were being made. The very friendly family took us by taxi out to the house where they make the clothes so we could have a look at the work in progress; luckily the girls seemed pleased with how they were progressing. We then went back into town to grab a breakfast of pancakes and Cao Lau at the great little restaurant we found yesterday.

After that, we started the waking tour; we visited a few interesting sites and old places of worship. But by this time it was midday and after an hour or so we decided that we would skip the last two attractions and head for a cold beer on a balcony bar down by the harbour. We chilled out there for a while before Ben and I went in search of WiFi and the girls went to pick up their new clothes.
We then crashed out at the hotel for a few hours to avoid the heat and booked our nightbus to Nha Trang that leaves on the evening of the 15th. We are now heading out to the island of Cam Nam, to visit a book market and have a drink, before going down to the Old Town over the Japenese Bridge to have a meal.

This is such a chilled out place and it is very nice to have a small, local atmosphere. Looking forward to the beach tomorrow as well. Let's hope Ben doesn't get too sunburnt!
