Dalat - Central Highlands

rain 15 °C
View OE on Gaz n Shaz's travel map.

Dalat is a small town in the mountains. It’s a lot colder so we finally get to wear the jeans and jumpers we have been lugging around the country. Strange sensation - especially having a hot shower for the first time since leaving Oz.

We head off sightseeing on the back of some motorbikes. The heavens open just as we start but we are not worried, it adds to the beautiful scenery. We check out a waterfall, take an ancient train through the vegetable fields (fields and field of vegs - amazing), see a pagoda (which was covered in mosaic from dinner plates - shaz recognised some of Ma Baigents blue and white china) and went to a crazy 'alice and wonderland' style house - not a straight line in it.

That evening we head out for dinner and come across a market. Apparently westerners go there in the day and locals at night but night time was all action, heaps of fresh food.
