This hotel seems to be mainly used by business people and large groups. The guide who dropped us said he had never collected from here before. The rooms were quite basic and musty smelling. We washed some clothes and they took 2 days to dry. The staff were wearing their coats in the restaurant - hard to tell who was staff and who were customers - no name badges either. Set on the outskirts of town next to the main lake in town. 5-10 minute walk to restaurants and shops.

Unlike the other night buses we've been on this one has double 'beds'. They would've been nice! It's a been a week I think since the last time I wrote, and we've been up to stuff, but not as much stuff as we probably could've stuffed. Last Tuesday we hopped on our boat for the Halong Bay tour. We had a nice bunch of people on ...

... with her, which did seem strange at the time but we decided to go with it. She took us first to a restaurant to eat salad and snails, and then we went to a coffee place to have ice cream and milkshakes. Overall, I think she had a fantastic birthday with us and everything was just so different and unique for us. I'm claiming the dinner as my 'homestay' which we missed out on in Sapa. Straight to bed after for our early bus in the ...
... and he's bestowing it upon me. I sat there while the blows rained down, all in the same spot, I was waiting for Nirvana to open up before me but alas the waitress came and shooed him away. She shrugged as I did and as I sit here I feel bruising on my back from the mystic massage.
On the way back from the mystic massage I got lost and ended up on the wrong side of the river. I decided to return via the French military bridge which I swear hasn't been repaired sine ...
... rice and a few bowls of dips. Quyns wife is 7 months pregnant and just happened to be a gold medal winner at badminton at the ASEAN games. She had a stack of medals hanging up on a dresser.
Then back to the hotel to meet the driver again and off to A1 Hill better known as Eliane. The walk up to the top just about killed me as it was the hottest part of the day. Tangles of barbed wire litter the slopes and the hill is honeycombed with tunnels and trenches. ...
