Tu asks Todd about his recent trip to her country.

 

Tu: Hey, Todd, I heard you went to Vietnam. Tell me about it?

Todd: Yeah, it was a really good trip. I went during the break, and I was only there for seven days.

Tu: Oh.

Todd: Yeah, kind of too short. But I went to Ho Chi Min, and Mui Ne, and Nha Trang, so I saw three cities in seven days.

Tu: Ho Chi Min – where did you go in Ho Chi Min?

Todd: Ho Chi Min … I just stayed downtown, and I didn’t know anything really about the city so I just kind of walked around or I went jogging around the city.

Tu: How did you feel about it? The city I mean.

Todd: Well, it was amazing cause there’s just so much energy, so much going on, you know. We’d say it’s a bustling city, so you know, there’s those motorbikes everywhere.

Tu: Yeah, that’s foreigner talk. Motorbikes.

Todd: Yeah. 24 hours, too, it seems like ther’re always going, and there’s lots of nice shops, and the food was really good.

Tu: Really.

Todd: Yeah, it was really good and really cheap.

Tu: Was it cheaper?

Todd: Oh, it was incredibly cheap. It was incredibly cheap. I couldn’t believe the first night I had this really good dish with the shrimp and vegetables and it only cost about three or four US dollars, so it was really cheap.

Tu: Two dollars.

Todd: Yeah, so good.

Tu: Did you go to Mui Ne?

Todd: Yeah, I did. I went to Mui Ne and …

Tu: How was it?

Todd: It was good. I mean, I went there actually to surf. I heard it had really good waves but I was there during the wrong season, I guess, so I didn’t surf, but they had this …

Tu: Why?

Todd: Well, the waves were just … there were no waves.

Tu: Oh, really?

Todd: Yeah, there were none.

Tu: OK.

Todd: But I saw the sandunes, and I was quite impressed.

Tu: The sand dunes. Yes, it is Mui Ne famous for.

Todd: I mean, it looks like you’re in the Sahara Desert or in Africa.

Tu: Really?

Todd: Yeah, they’re so big, and some places, when you stand, all you can see is the sand, like, you can’t see anything else. It’s pretty amazing.

Tu: Mm! It looks so beautiful.

Todd: It is. It is really beautiful.

Tu: I love it too.

Todd: And then the last day, I went to Nha Trang. Am I saying that right? Nha Trang.

Tu: Nha Trang.

Todd: Nha Trang.

Tu: Oh , yeah. The famous beach.

Todd: Yes, and that actually surprised me because Ho Chi Min was very old and very gritty and crowded and Mui Ne was kind of a very small traditional beach village, and then, Nha Trang was like this big city. It’s like Waikiki in Hawaii. It was like a resort.

Tu: Yeah, yeah, it’s very beautiful and like high quality.

Todd: Right, exactly.

Tu: High quality.

Todd: Exactly. I couldn’t believe it. And I got a really great hotel, right on the beach, over-looking the ocean, third floor for only ten dollars a night.

Tu: Ten dollars?

Todd: Yeah.

Tu: Nice price.

Todd: So, I was very impressed. And you know, the food was good, and it was nice.

Tu: Did you get to go to Hanoi?

Todd: I didn’t because I only had seven days, so you’re from Hanoi right?

Tu: Yes, I’m from Hanoi.

Todd: Yeah, I should go there. I did like Vietnam a lot. I do want to go back, so hopefully, I can go back and go to Hanoi next time.

Tu: Next time I will be your tour guide.

Todd: Oh, thanks Tu. That would be great.
