So after arriving back to the hotel in Sa Pa on Friday, we went to Love Waterfall Although we got a car, there were still about a million steps to get there! Was worth it though because it was really beautiful. We had to drive really high up to get there and were in the clouds - near the highest point in the whole of Vietnam. I was feeling a bit queasy so I bought a can of coke at the arrival point

We then stopped off at another waterfall a bit further down but this time you could see it from the road. Some of the group went up to the top to see it but the rest of us stayed at the bottom. Out of nowhere a grouo of about 8 children between baby age and 7ish ran up to us and started grabbing for the coke!! Basically, I got mugged by a group of children for my soft drink!!!! Was quite sad though because they were all by themselves and in the rush to grab the coke on of the smallest boys who must have been about 3 fell over and wouldn't stop crying. Lisa picked him up to soothe him and he eventually stoped crying but it's such a dangerous environment for them. Another little girl who could have been no older than about 4 had her baby sibling strapped to her back.

We then went back to the hotel in Sa Pa, had dinner and I FINALLY WASHED MY HAIR AFTER 5 DAYS!! I felt so happy!!

Then yesterday we just had a lazy day because it was absolutely pouring down with rain - we were so lucky it was only like that on the last day because the trek would have been almost impossible with that rain. We went to a bakery and had some cakes (brownie for me whoo!) and then after lunch we went for a massage. It was then time to go back to Lao Cai to get the sleeper train to Hanoi. Slept like a baby and felt a bit disorientated when I was woken up by shouting becase we had arrived!!
