Not the best train ever...

Today we rode from Sai Gon (Ho Chi Minh City) to Nha Trang (a mid size city on the south central coast) and I have to be honest...it was a less than ideal train ride, but we are grateful to be here safe and sound.

Let's just say that the "Air Conditioned Soft Seat" cab averaged 86 degrees and the seats were soft like vinyl. And there was a bit of a stench that we're still not sure if it was food brought on board, bathrooms not working, hot bodies or a combo of all three. Seven hours later, we were SO HAPPY to get off that train!!

PS - Home Alone was playing on the train with Vietnamese sound. Nothing like hearing a high Vietnamese woman's voice coming out of Macaulay Culkin to help distract you from the heat and stink!
