... a bike ride which we didn't realise (our hotel pulling some strings again). 8 of the group took part. We ventured by boat over to Cat Ba which is the largest island in Ha Long Bay (12miles from Ha Long City). We cycled in land for about 5km passing through a small traditional village with rice paddies, cows and goats. We took a short walk into the jungle hoping to see monkeys which are now protected due to poachers (some Vietnamese people like to eat monkey ...
... popular - turns out it was the health centre.... Glad we didn't go in there and ask for a table! We then spotted a tiny little shop selling drinks and snacks and were so tired (and still pretty full from 3 lunches, 7 hot sandwiches and umpteen snacks on the plane) so we figured we'd just grab something, head back to the room and collapse.

When it was time to go out I felt ill as **** and ended up being wet and stayed in bed whilst the others went out. They said they had a good night, BIM managed to convert 4 years of groundwork and shagged Amy Hall - good work.
... introduced me to local cuisine that my adventurous side couldn't resist: pig ear and dried squid. The pig ear was actually quite delectable! I willed myself into believing I felt okay and accepted their invitation to go to Paraiso, the bar one of the guys owns. It was a Latino-style bar on the main street. We had a relaxed night and I learned a lot about them and their culture. When I say we talked about their culture, it's actually surprising how similar we are. We do the ...
