3 July 2001

Took taxis to Frontier House via the ANZ bank to change cash, which was needed as soon as we arrived to pay visa fees. We also had to surrender our passports to get work permits.

Frontier House is a tall building with tiled floors and air conditioning in some rooms! After an introductory talk we went to a Bia Hoi for lunch. There were small bowls of everything rice, beef, beansprouts and bizarely chips. After lunch we returned to the house and some people went off shopping while the rest of us cleaned and repaired tools. At 4 we walked back to the hotel across terrifying streets where the traffic weaves round you but never stops. Ate dinner at Minh's again but I was still full from lunch and put off by the smell of rotting veg in the street.
