I was hoping for flowers and/or a beach, and Vung Tau had a little of both, but the best part of this excursion for me was staying at the Rex.
The carpet was all worn and nothing had been changed since the seventies. It was like going back in time, something that, I suppose, is impossible.
“Ghetto,” said Suze, but I just imagined a couple coming in mid-conversation, her in gabardine, Twiggy eyelashes…
Drink in hand, she is taking off her earrings and saying dah-ling; she totally runs the show.
My imagination went wild in that place. It was a lot of fun.
