Considering how hot and humid Vietnam can get, some of the most enjoyable days are spent at the beach. This certainly was the case at the Seahorse Hotel & Spa in Mui Ne (about 4 hours from Saigon) where Loan’s family and I hung out for an afternoon. The hotel was right on a private beach with warm waters and crashing waves. To top it off there was a 25-meter pool on the hotel grounds where we swam and did our own little contests of who could swim the farthest on a single breath.
Even more memorable was staying up with Nam and Kim until 4:00 a.m. talking about everything from friends and family to cars and college. It was like a slumber party. Loan should be commended for doing such a great job raising those two; both are super cool.
