The weather in Hue was not favourable and Cha and I decided we could not take it any longer, we had to move further south. As Danang was on our way to Hoi An we thought we might stop here for a day or so before heading to Hoi An. Upon arriving we took out the trusty guide and caught a taxi to the city centre. Stopping at a few hotels and not negotiating a very good rate and seeing the town from the taxi windows we quickly decided to keep moving and instructed our driver to take us to Hoi An straight away. A very good choice. The fare was only $30 and it saved us having to deal with the local bus and waiting with the kids. All they wanted to do was swim in a pool.
The hotel we chose for our first night was called the Phuoc An, it had a pool but the only room available was an internal one with no windows and the room smelt of mould which permeated all our senses. For one night we could survive but we quickly searched around for a few alternatives and finally settled on a new hotel just around the corner (Bach Dang II) with a much bigger outdoor area for the same price.
We called the foundation we are going to work for from Hue and were pleased to know they were expecting us. The next step for us now is to make contact and develop a daily routine.
With the children this is easily done. The chaos of moving frequently is hard for them but developing a routine is easy.
Charlotte and I have already found an amazing restaurant with very inexpensive food. The best part is they offer cooking lessons for their favourite dishes at very affordable prices. We will be serving Vietnamese cuisine to our friends when we get back. That is a guarantee.
