Lost or stolen?

Written on: Monday January 14th, 2008

A journal entry from: See you next year!

If anyone has seen this camera, please contact us. It could be on the bottom of a mountain in Dalat (last seen), on the bus from Dalat to Nha Trang, or it was taken from our hotelroom, either in Dalat or Nha Trang.

Not uploaded pics and events include HCMC/Saigon, beach at Mui Ne, climbing a hill in Dalat and of course we were just about to make a backup of all pictures on CD to send home. :-(

Roy thinks it was taken from the hotelroom, I think I left it somewhere, on a mountain or something, and I have been thinking hard about what I prefer: Did we get robbed or did I just lose something?

I think I prefer the latter, as I am very proud nothing has happened to us in the past 11 months at all: We are not the kind of people that get robbed, I just lose things.

But actually the worst part is not knowing. Roy had a point that the girls from the hotel were quite quick in advising us to go to the police "for the insurance". Nee, I still think it is on the mountain. But then again, why would I leave my camera on a mountain?

Having to deal with the vietnamese police was actually kind of fun, where two very young girls wrote down our story as if it were a love letter...and then telling us their boss demanded money for the statement. She wanted 1.000.000 dong (about 10 euros), and when we just laughed about it, so did she and gave us the statement anyway. It was worth the try. Ah well, where ever it is, I hope it's happy.

Will update previous entries later...

So you lost your unique photos of the Dodo and the sunbathing Vietnamese girls? What a shame!

We hebben hier in Belize nog even goed gezocht, maar hier ligt ie ook niet. Wel kut zeg. Lachen om corrupte ambtenaren werkt inderdaad erg goed. Bij de grens met Honduras zijn we zo ook onder de "verplichte" entrance fee uitgekomen.
