About half way through the ride we stopped at a restaurant on the side of the rode and got some food to eat. I was very excited to eat my first out-of-the-US meal. Among the adventurous eaters were my dad, Henry, Bruce, and a few others who decided to dine on a full deep fried fish. My palette, however, decided that a simple dish of chicken and fried rice would do just fine. In addition to the fish, Henry also down three coconuts full of milk!
From there on we enjoyed more of the scenery and another two hours of our drive, and finally arrived at our destination, the Golf Hotel, which overlooks the amazing Mekong River. A group of us decided to go out for a walk around the city and enjoy some fresh air. Tomorrow will be an early morning; we will be screening our first set of patients at 8:30 am.
