... an equally beautiful but more tranquil version of Ha Long Bay. Everyone was lazily admiring the views from the open top deck, with many, many photos taken. Next on the itinerary was some kayaking through some caves, exploring a couple of lagoons. In our kayak, I took role of captain (as I sat in the back, and Gemma wouldn't have been able to see in front otherwise!), and Gemma was chief photographer when needed.

... good! Even though we added a lot of chillies! We went back to the corner pub for a game of pool and I played this time. Scott got beaten by a Vietnamese girl again and then a French man and he narrowly beat me. I messed up at the very end with the French man, I nearly beat him!
