After 6 hours we arrived to Vinh and
checked in at a very nice hotel,
The view from the railway station. The buildings are drab and grey as in
most communist countries.
They say they have
Internet, but not on the trains.
The main railway station in Hanoi.
Our train is off to Saigon. We are only going
to Vinh, some 6 hours away.
The train is narrow tracked and so
are the coaches.
At the main railway station
Martin inside the train.
The inside view of the train.
It is not European standard due to
the narrow track of the railway lines.
doling some computer work on the train.
Geir with no red-eye adjustments.
No red-eyes here.
Vinh is amazing. A central
controlled economy as in all communist countries. They said Vinh should have
fancy hotels, restaurants, entertainment etc. The problems is that there are
no people here. It almost like a deserted city. We went to a big entrainment
complex. Only six girls in an establishment that could house close to 1000
people. Communism is shit. We went back to bed watching CNN and playing with
our computers. We have a nice time.
One of the drivers in Vinh.
The roads are wide with few humans in them.
The receptionist at Huong Dong
Hotel were nice enough.
The view from the room.
Across the street, a big
entertainment complex with large restaurant etc, but no people? Strange.
A veranda outside our window couldn't be used for anything.
In the end, we ended up in the
hotel for dinner. Geir with the waitress.
Martin too with the waitress. Nothing else to
do so we went to bed watching CNN and playing with our computers.
The dining all could house more
then 200 guests. We were 8. Weird.
Off to Hue, Thursday February
5th. Another misty day with a drizzle in the air.
