Long weekend

Had an excellent weekend and I'm gutted it's over and we have to go back to school again! We came down to Mui Ne which is a little strip of beach in the South China Sea. The weather has been lovely - maybe a bit too hot and the sun is punishing. There are so many lobster-people about. Luckily Gareth and I are anti-sun and smother ourselves in factor 50.

On Saturday night we went out with a load of people from school. Great seafood BBQ on the beach then dancing and beer on cushions round a bonfire. Felt a bit worse for wear the next day and we just slept on the beach and round the pool. I really needed a good catch up on sleeping as it's been crazy since we started work.

Last night we went to the gala celebration at our hotel - it's independence day today. There was loads of traditional dancing that was very cool but it all went a bit eurovision as the cheesy singers appeared. I swear one of them was Michael Jackson straight out of the eighties. We had a laugh anyway. We're back on the bus after midday to go home and I will post some photos when we get back.
