I checked out of my hotel this morning where I have stayed for the past eight nights. I was starting to loose track as to how long I have actually been here. The longer you stay in a place you become more familiar with it and you have more opportunity to make friends. I could probably stay here longer, but I now only have 8 more days left on my visa. I believe that it is fairly simple to get an extension. A few people have told me that they really liked Hanoi, so I might spend a bit of time there.

I am catching the overnight bus to Hoi An this evening. I wanted to catch the train but it doesn’t stop at Hoi An but at Danang, which is a little further north.
