Halong Bay

Halong Bay is one of the most beautiful and amazing things I have ever seen. It was recently named to the new natural seven wonders of the world. We were lucky enough to spend a night on a boat as we sailed through the Karst mountains. We also toured through the ‘surprising’cave, called that because it is surprisingly big, original right? After supper we we were shown how to catch squid off the back of the boat, I’m pretty sure this was like a snipe hunt at girls camp, you know keep the dumb tourists happy while we et a good laugh, but it was a beautiful evening to be hanging out on a boat in the moonlight. The next morning we went kayaking through a cave into a lagoon, and saw monkeys playing on the mountain side. Sadly no pictures because we didn’t want to get the camera wet, but who knew how good we were going to be at kayaking and so our camera would have been safe. Kayaking was very fun, and I only got a little wet. imageimageimage

On the road back to Hanoi we passed this guy hauling his cow. We were taking pictures and laughing and our driver who had no English thought we were excited about seeing a cow and so pointed more out to us in the field further down the road, cause seeing a cow going down the road pulled by a motorcycle was nothing new to him. image
We flew to Hue and spent the next few days there and did more touring and shopping. We went watch shopping and we each bought a new watch, John’s and Tim’s quit working, I guess they should have bought a “Rolex” like mine. image
