Today was an early start and 10 hours on the train.
This was made easier when I met a couple who were heading home from a month in Vietnam.
We passed the time and they gave me some good advice about visiting their hometown.
It was raining when we got here .
After helping me get some local money and they got me to a nice place to stay.
It was like meeting angels.
I thanked them by saying “ah-chu” which is “thank you”
even though it sounds like a sneeze.
I was directed to a local place to eat where a live rooster meets you in the lobby.
I guess the food is something to crow about.
Someone asked me how I could afford to travel around the world. I’ve been saving money for six months and just spending less each day and planning my trip. I found a flight from New York to London for $250. I’m spending about $50 a day and traveling by train or bus. I am staying in hostels for about $20 a night. It’s just a room with a bed.
Well, others are hovering around to use the only computer in the lobby.
