It's always the first Sunday in October right?

That's been reliable for years right?

It'd better be because I've had to book the weekend off for it. Complicated shifts I have.

This thread seems to have fallen off.

Shame.

Where were we?

I think?

Maybe I've fallen off?

I've got a photo somewhere of me and Mrs P sitting at that table on the right!  It's in Ho Chi Minh in the Pham Ngu Lao travellers area.

I think I've been in there. Would have to look through a million photos to confirm though. I liked Ho Chi Minh, but fell in love with Hanoi. My holiday to Vietnam was so magical that I'd love to go back. My only problem is talking Mrs Yog in to going.

yup....first trip to HCM a long time ago was great but a visit more recently it seemed to have lost a lot of cultural charm....which Hanoi has in buckets.  Great museums but that's about it now we felt.

i also have a picture from the same trip of Mrs P stood outside the original US Embassy (demolished a few years back now...) where the helicopters ferried people from the roof in 1975 to ships offshore.....not a soul around....quite ghostly.

I'm not one for going in to sw*nky bars, but was advised to go in to a roof top bar when I visited Thailand. The bar itself was in Bangkok (photo below).  Anyway, once I visited this I have always tried to include a drink in a roof top bar wherever new I visit. I would thoroughly recommend it. For the price of an expensive'ish drink you get a birds eye view of the city.
