Chris goes hard

Our next stop on the open bus tour was a place called Nha Trang (where they held Miss Universe last month). So it was all flashed up especially the road from the airport into the main town. It was far too 'resorty' for us and we were feeling quite disappointed with the place and the very expensive drinks along the beach (we can't help but compare everything to 50 cent Sihanoukville drinks!) so left after a quick walk and look around to head back to our guesthouse.
On the way we were stopped by a man and his friends drinking beer hoi (cheap beer from a keg on a road side stall). At first we though he was one of the hundred or so cyclo or moto drivers wanting to take us a very short way for a ridiculously large price but he was actually a nice genuine guy wanting a chat.
So we sat down for (just one) beer and three hours later joined them for a round of karaoke.
Unfortunately all the songs except for a couple of exceptions (we wish you a merry Christmas being one- which we sung) were in Vietnamese. I swear Chris must have been Vietnamese in a past life cos he rocked! I think he sings better in Vietnamese than in English!
This was our (only) highlight of Nha Trang. We left the next evening on the sleep bus.
