We were picked up by a vietnamese lady and taken to a very very small boat. There was nothing too strange about our boat ride apart from the woman driving! She loved practical jokes! She would howl with laughter every time she tipped the boat to make us nearly fall in, shouting "lucky lucky". She would get long bits of grass and put them down our tops or tickle our ears with them! This was very funny at first as she was loving it so much but after 4 hours of practical jokes the smiles locked onto our faces were starting to fade!
She was brilliant at making things and made a grasshopper out of grass, rings and a bracelet.
Somewhere along the trip she got the idea that Aidan and I were brother and sister! At this point she took a massive shine to Aidan. She kept grabbing his ass, tickling him, asking me to get out of the boat etc! Obviously seeing how uncomfortable and confused Aidan was only made the boat ride more entertaining!
The floating market itself was fascinating as you saw all the various boats packed with food for sale. After a couple of hours on the river we were dropped off to walk through the local village and then visit a fruit garden. We ate various fruits which were all amazing.
We all sat down for lunch and our boat lady continued to play practical jokes. She found a pair of fruits and held them up against Aidans trouser area! Again howling with laughter. She then had a long conversation in Vietnamese about the size of bananas and the size of Aidan's .... Although neither of us speak Vietnamese it was all made clear when she held the banana against Aidan and shouted "same same". ( Aidan has censored the publication of this photo!)
When we finally reached dry land she asked me to get out of the boat and go away so she could go out with Aidan!
Later on after a very relieved Aidan managed to escape his admirer we started walking around the town. We had only walked about 100 yards when an old lady in the street stopped me and beckoned me to bend down to her. She then grabbed my nose and pressed on the bones! She started shrieking with laughter much to the delight of her family who all had their thumbs up for me and shouted its good it's good. She then squashed her own nose flat to show it had no bone in in it! Slightly bemused Aidan and I laughed and carried on down the street! All in all it had been a pretty full on day of bum and nose grabbing!
