Harbor was crowded as usual . Older ladies were trying to sell fruits in their colorful pajamas . Men sat on the kinder garden blue and red benches and chatted while slowly sipping famous Vietnamese coffee . Some officials , wearing dark blue jumpsuits and matching hats , were in their cabinets ,just glanced out of window from time to time . And scooter were buzzing of course .
We sat with them and tried snails .H had no prolems and she just kept looking at me and laughing , as i carefully and thoughtfully tried them . I didnt knew what to expect .. Will they feel slimy , taste sour , move in my mouth ?
They were fine …But i was planning to eat more than 5 .
OLDER LADIES WERE TRYING TO SELL FRUITS IN THEIR COLORFUL PAJAMAS
Boat arrived in Nha Trang harbor and everyone claimed on it at once , almost , although few Vietnamese people let older ones to pass ahead . There was no space .. We sat where we could find one .Ride was only 10 minutes long .
And on other side : Civilization …. Even 4 tourists wondering around .
We arrived to the floating markets . Its only a walking distance to the right side path . We made a deal to the boat lady to bring us closer .She did ot let us go to them – to walk on floating villages , just see them from distance . She was wearing traditional hat and a face cover , even gloves . She smiled a lot and kept looking at me , while slowly moving pedal .She seemed nice , or maybe she just didnt care – she knew that she will get paid . Who knows !?!
MEN SAT ON THE KINDER GARDEN BLUE AND RED BENCHES AND CHATTED WHILE SLOWLY SIPPING FAMOUS VIETNAMESE COFFEE
After 1,5 h exploration , conversation , translation , me trying to move boat and a sunburn we were done .
We walked around more and found ourselves on other side of the Island where is Aquarium .
Here we thought , why not explore this too ..?! Entrance was 50 000 vnd .
It was filled with creatures from the waters of Nha Trang , Hun Mun marine park . Like Nemo , catfish , seahorse , dam selfish and so on … They looked lonely and too many in one aquarium. I looked at 10 Nemos stuffed in one aquarium on one anemone .. I could see my reflection in the aquarium glass , i looked as sad as they did ..
We sat on the boat at front … Only 8 other people were on it and she just kept screaming .. Why did she shouted so loud ?! … I thought .. She was a lady who have lost her mind and talked to herself on the pear where the boat was parked . It was strange , as everyone else just passed by her and completely ignored her . Sad …
So at 3 pm we were back .. Sun was still shining , we decided to visit beach and relax under beach umbrella !
Strawberry ice cream melting over my fingers , dripping on my t shirt ( i didn’t care ) … Sun shining in my eyes , wind in between my feet fingers .. Perfectly spent afternoon …
H. HAD NO PROBLEMS AND SHE JUST KEPT LOOKING AT ME AND LAUGHING
