3Rk - that was last weekend! How did you miss it? In Hue the drummers were out day and night with the dragon dancers and yet again I shot off a large number of photos. And the shops were full of mooncakes - all gone now though.
Cheers captain - I was wondering if you were ok as I haven't seen any posts from you lately. You're right about the spammers - I was thinking the same thing earlier today as I ran down the list of recent posts.

5The weather in Hue is wet today. The first tropical storm of the season is just off the coast of central VN and we are on its northern edge - I think. It's hard to tell from the computer predictions of its likely path whether we will cop a lot of rain or a little. But as it is the wet season in central VN now it's only to be expected. But it is a contrast with yesterday which was warm and pleasant, with no wind or rain.
I have been to Bar Why Not? only once in its new location. I find its new site rather dull with limited views after the busy location on the corner. The new bar on the corner site is called Sunlight which, being an Aussie, means detergent to me. There has been repainting and a new awning but otherwise it's much as Why Not? was, although the drinks are cheaper. I really enjoy the busyness of that corner so have been to the new bar twice. Let me know when you're coming back so I can do some serious comparisons in readiness.

6Captain , in Germany they have Oktoberfest....
Here in Vietnam we have Toutfest during October.
Most of the touts have been flicked into the bin.
The thing I like about LP is they basically have impartial reviews and posts. TA is full of that much BS with reviews posted by Hotel and restaurant owners and friends. Most of these establishments are paying members of TA and TA advises them of bad reviews. Don't think your information is confidential. TA passes it onto their members when a bad review is posted.
Bottom line LP is a 100% more ethical than TA.
