I had a lazy day my second day in Tuy Hoa but it ended very unpredictably. I ate some fruit for breakfast and went online at the post office. Internet in Vietnam is very cheap, less than 50 cents for an hour or cheaper. I was near the beach so I thought I should spend some time on the beach. Locals are very friendly here and Tuy Hoa is not touristy at all. A lot of people say hi to me. I don’t see any foreigners around. This is just what I wanted for a few days, to get off the beaten track but still be somewhere nice. I went to the beach to read for a while. It was warm but I didn’t feel like swimming. I’m the type of guy who can live near a beach for days and not swim in the ocean. As I’m sitting there reading my book a few teenagers come by and plop themselves down beside me. They don’t speak much english but that doesn’t seem to matter. They get a table brought over and order a few beers. As with a lot of places in Vietnam, the beer is warm but they bring a big bucket of ice. The ice is safe here. I generally don’t like to drink beer with ice, I’m not a big drinker and if the beer is not cold, I just won’t drink it. Vietnam is the first country where I find myself drinking ice beer. It’s ok, just watered down. After the beers I showered and we went to one of their houses. Then we took a few motos down to a carnival like thing. We went on a mini roller coaster, played foosball, paddled on giant swans and ate a huge feast. It was really fun, but a bit frustrating because we couldn’t talk to each other much. They seemed really happy just to hang out with me though.
