Da Nang is a major city on the coast in the middle of Vietnam. Jason’s father was stationed here back in the war and we guarantee it looked nothing like this. There is a thriving economy and lights galore after the sun goes down. At night you can find families down by the riverfront bicycling, skating, and even exercising. There’s little kids running around everywhere and vendors selling ice cream and other treats. It’s one of the best areas to go if you want to talk with locals. While Jason was down there photographing the bridges, people were approaching him just to say hello and practice their English. It was really kind of weird because so many other places around Vietnam, we didn’t even feel welcome. We stayed here just two nights as a stopping point and didn’t get out to explore anything. Much of our time was spent working on the computer and getting caught up so that we can keep all of you up to date. The bridges that span the Han River in Da Nang are really interesting and very artistic in their architecture. There is a Dragon Bridge that is complete with a tail and fire-breathing head, and two self-supporting suspension bridges, all complete with lights that constantly change throughout the night. We were on the opposite side of the river and didn’t get to see the fire burst from the mouth. It was very pretty though, so we thought we’d share them with you. Our next stop will be Hoi An, a town known for it’s custom clothes and tailors.
