... we were off again, this time in search of dessert. This ended at what can only be described as a painted garage. Our faith in Lee was maintained as we were served with a fruit cocktail in coconut milk mixed with condensed milk(!) and crushed (bottled) ice on top. Although not a fan of milky products, this was a great mix and was delicious.
Our final stop on our Hanoi nighttime experience was for a local coffee. We went down an alleyway ...
... excitement began to bubble up in everyone. The views were spectacular. Ha Long Bay houses over 2000 limestone karsts that jut out of the water, creating stunning scenery in every direction. The beauty of the place cannot be adequately captured because it morphs around every turn.

In one moment she was about to start crying and in general she showed a really bad attitude towards us.
Later we kept on sailing around Halong bay and after 4 ...
... back to the big, luxury boat we slept on the other night and we met some people who were doing the two day/one night trip. We enjoyed the gorgeous, but grey, views while we rode back to the harbour. We were provided with one more great meal for lunch before getting back on the bus for the three and a half hour long ride back to Hanoi. I really enjoyed this trip and although I wish the weather had been better, I wouldn't have changed anything else. It was a fantastic way to spend three ...
