It is a grey day, but still hot and humid enough to be sweating away again. There is a party going on in the village as the government has given them an award of some sort so everyone is out, old women in traditional dress chewing the red spit stuff and knocking bamboo together in a sort of dance
14:12 Having talked prices with some of the guys I've stayed with this morning, I realise I've paid a bit more on somethings than I should have. The massage the other day was pretty pricey so I'm going to try and find a cheaper one for sure and be more savvy with my spending.
16:11 We left Mai Chau and it's a clear sunny day, so those views I missed yesterday when we were in thick fog were quite a surprise as i could see for miles into the distance- hills and valleys green with with trees and rice fields. It really is an incredible view.
It was a 4 hour trip back to Hanoi and we arrived after dark. I was pleased to get into some air conditioning and a soft bed. I watched a film whilst uploading my photos from my camera to my computer and finally went to bed quite early as it would be another early start.
Best: some fantastic views in the drive back
Worst: the long long drive back
Beautiful: the views from high in the hills
