We were picked up from Sapa for our six hour mini bus trip back to Hanoi today. After a rather hair raising trip negotiating all the bends down the pass from Sapa at a rather fast speed, we were grateful to have made it to the bottom!

I declined, and he was clearly not happy, complaining that no more tourists take motorbike taxis (well mate, this happens if you screw them all the time - information about that spreads). He drove off and waited at the next crossing. I was a bit concerned and turned left the next corner. As I went for a walk earlier I ...
