Travel Tips from people who've been to Da Lat
this place goes up and down like postman pat the air is fresh and hi up. in this place i came across several eccetrics firstly the levitating monk who had not eaten for 3 moths looked great ad had filled a monestry with 300 rice cookers and tents to enlighten the locals, they had to sit in the saunas for a week and then could travel parallel uiverses ad be cured of worldly sicknesses then there was the elusive paintig monk who lived alone i an enclosure with huge iron gates like great expectations he resided behind a misty zen bamboo garden and his room was a bohemian mess of paintings ad paper, he wore a wooly hat with a wild peek a beautiful cloth clook and shinny boats he made them himself which is great but then he tried to take them off and sell them to us because he wated to go to china. then i meet a tai chi master who trained me at dawn, he was also obsessed with kundelini, ad then i meet tom a very young vietnamese boy who used to take me to brothels and cafes in the evenning, we used to drink alot of hot chocolate and he used to buy me lots of silk it was nice, then there where the nuns of the forest some where hot some where sweat and some where evil. they wore silk slippers and had chainsaws, and they made tofu in huge woden presses. we wore grey dresses which was sad because the nus where told they could not be enlightened as women complete sexist communist dribble so i left. but there was a very special lady there so so so so sweat well she had been there 20 years, like a agel in a cave i was lucky to fall apon she soft nature and sweet giggles. the air is lovely in winter beautiful courting bars and coutryside.

The Art Cafe in Dalat serves the best PUMPKIN SOUP I've ever tasted and the owner is hilarious! Let me know if you'll be travelling to Dalat because I have a few pictures I would like to give to the owner. And when you're in Dalat, DO spend a week on the back of a motor bike with one of the easy riders! That was probably one of the best and most fun things I've done in Viet Nam.

Xuan Huong Lake is haunted... Swim across at your own risk!!! Some locals blame the numerous "accidental drownings" in the past to a cold river current that runs through the middle of the lake, but others believe the spirits of all those who died there during the war lure unsuspecting victims into the lake and pull them under. Be Careful!!
