Asia | South East Asia | Vietnam | South Central coast | Nha Trang – i’ll be staying in nha trang
it’s all settled, i know what i’m doing the next four months: i’ll be scuba diving.
i’ve got an internship for octopus diving, they made me a really good deal (so good i’m not allowed to tell any of the other interns about it) because they needed someone who speaks a scandinavian language, english, french, spanish and so-so vietnamese. and they wanted a girl.
in four months i’ll be a dive master.
here’s my new address:
Hanja c/o Octopus Diving
62 Tran Phu St
so all i need now is a bikini.
but there’s no rush – i can’t go in the water for a few days. that motorbike burn of mine got infected. it got pretty ugly before i took it to a doctor. i don’t know what i was thinking. it looked fine to begin with. it was just the top skin that peeled off and i didn’t even get a blister. i started caughing, i thought it was because i’d slept little and been out partying too much. on the third day i bought vitamin e cream (see gus: i did listen to you) and put it on twice a day. it cracked up and bled a little, yellow puss was coming out of it. the wound didn’t close up. my thigh was hurting and i couldn’t figure out why, first i thought i’d bumped into something – but it worried me that i wasn’t getting a bruise.
on the fifth day i mentioned that my thigh was hurting to someone. it turned out the guy was some sort of doctor, he had one look at my wound and had someone call a good doctor that could see me right away. he lendt me money and put me on a motorbike taxi. he said if i’d left it a bit longer like that i could have lost my foot..
the doctor cleaned it up. i had a high fever and a throat infection as well. so i got a long list of things to buy at the drug store. she said it should heal just fine though.
