... was a wash out, we lasted an hour or so then headed back to the boat (we didn't fancy getting struck by lightning) and after little sleep and aching muscles a nap on the boat was in order. The boat dropped us back on the island, and we caught the reverse busses and ferries back to Hanoi.
We arrived back to Hanoi in the early evening and where excited to go and watch a water puppet performance. On the way we went for bambo nam bo (beef and noodles) which was very ...

The last stop of the night worshiped the country’s obsession with fruit and sugar. Unlike most Asian desserts I’ve had, the fruit, ice cream, and pastry combinations were pretty normal. It was mainly the variety of fruit that was special. Though, we did have durian; the fruit that is supposed to smell like rotting flesh when first opened. Since the durian came already ...
