We've made it to Phu island this afternoon after a short flight from Can Tho. We arrived just before 2pm local time. Since i didn't book any hotel ahead of time (that was unlike me!) we were scrambling to find a decent hotel to call home for the next few nights. We ended up at the Huong Bien Hotel which turned out to be a beautiful place with an outdoor pool overlooking the beach. Photos to follow. Carol was pretty happy with this place considering our previous arrangements for accommodations. She can fill you in the rest in the morning.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect weather for this leg of the trip. It's been sunny and warm perfect temperature for a swim in the ocean or the pool. I've been enjoying my cold beaverage of choice (Heiniken) for $25,000 vnd = $1+cad by the pool side. Sweet.
