Sapa

We got back from Sapa this morning (at 4.20am for all those who think this travelling lark is actually fun). It was pretty cool, we did a 2 day trek with a stop over at a hill tribe village. We didn't really interact with the family that much but had a good evening with a few beers.

The actual town was a bit dead as it's off season but we found the one bar that seemed to be worth going to.

Now we've killed another day in Hanoi and we're getting the overnight bus to Hue (pronounced Hwey) in about half an hour. Should be a fun ride. We got the overnight train to Sapa it was fine on the way out there as we were knackered from Halong but not so fun on the way back. I'm looking forward to pressing on into Vietnam, apparently the people are more friendly in the south, we shall see.

Don't try and make out it's a hard life. Just think of poor Tom slaving away on something pointless and boring!

I remember being very frustrated getting off that early morning train into Hanoi.

The buggers were all busy haggling me and all I wanted was me bed.

Ignore the miserable two above me, it ain't fun lugging a bag full of all your possesions when sleep deprivated at 4 in the morning. Still, it's only a minor downside to trippin'

Ah Tom, you bring such delight to Suze and I, anything remotely difficult or inconvenient becomes a pleasant blur as we consider your plight, thanks buddy!
