We were in the mood for some pho in the morning and drove into town searching for a place serving that wonderful morning dish. It seems pho is not as popular here as it is in HCMC and we ended up having baguette with egg. We drove once again to Vietnam Airlines and this time we got lucky-we were able to get tickets for a flight back to HCMC for the following day! Although we could have easily stayed on the island for another 2 weeks, we were relieved that we wonâ€™t need to spend a whole day journeying back by boat and bus.
Realizing that this was our last full day on the island, we drove to Long Beach and started the tanning/eating/drinking routine immediately. We hung out at the Thien Hai Son resort admiring the clean water and making a new eager friend â€“ a cute cat wonderfully colored like the golden sand.
In the afternoon, we drove back into town where Kevin taught me how to ride a motorbike! For the first time, I was the one in the driverâ€™s seat going at a raging speed of 20 km/hr! No innocent bystanders were hurt but they all had an amusing time watching me try to shift to 2nd gear. No, sorry, no video attached.
That was exhausting and I needed some dinner! We drove back to the resort area and chose a great place serving BBQ seafood, it was yum!
