The staff and students at the University were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. A teacher from the University met us at the airport and since we would miss our last exam in Sweden, he arranged so that we could write the exam at the university in Da Nang instead. Prior to our collection of data, we had a meeting with our Vietnamese supervisor at the University to go through the day. We went to the examination room and tested the machine that we were going to use. On the day Emma and I measured the abdominal aorta with ultrasound on students and our supervisor in helped us get started. It was a fun day but difficult and without her the process would have been even more challenging. After the collection we spent a lot of time at different cafes around Da Nang to compile our data and write on our essay. On weekends we went to the beach or made small day trips to places nearby. We went to Lady Buddha, climbed the stairs to the top of Marble mountains and took a Grab to the cosy old town of Hoi An. We also went on a diving trip outside of Hoi An where we saw clownfish, lionfish and nudibranchs amongst others. One weekend we did a little longer trip and we took the flight to the island Phu Quoc were we stayed three nights and experienced the awesome night market and Sao beach. On the way back to Da Nang we stayed one night in Ho Chi Minh city, a large city in the south of Vietnam previously called Saigon.
