thanks for your mail. I am back at my office desk now - sadly my holiday in Vietnam is over. I enjoyed it very much, though - and also enjoyed the bike trip through the Mekong Delta very much. Hung was a very good replacement for you - at least I can say we had lots of fun with him and he really showed us around the backroads. Everything was perfectly arranged, we were felt well, the hotels were allright - we loved the trip.
Best wishes from Germany. 05 Dec 2011
