We kayaked for several hours around these unbelievable rock formations. I took lots of pictures and will get a few up for you all to see. There were also people in small boats selling fruit, most of which was really foreign to me. One of our group didn't go kayaking so he stayed in the fishing village and found out that they have a floating school out there and the kids go to school up until about 4th grade and then most of them just become fishermen like their parents. There were lots of dogs living with the people on what amounts to rafts supported by big pieces of styrofoam.
It is interesting to me that I feel less in a foreign country in Vietnam so far than I did in China. I think this is because we have so much exposure to Vietnamese culture in St. Paul. People are incredibly friendly.
Tomorrow a day at sea again. Will try to get some photos up.
