Vietnam

Hanoi

overcast 22 °C

Hi all!

We have made a brief stop at Halong Bay, sailed around some big limestone rocks, wandered through a huge cave (very pretty) and cannoed through gaps in the rocks into the middle of some of the limstone formations. It was all very pretty.

From there we travelled back to Hanoi (the city in the bend of the river). We also very excitingly had sandwiches!! On real bread!! (got very excited by this - first time anyone has seen real bread in nearly 3 weeks!)
Yesteday we went to the water puppet show which seems to be an important part of Vietnamese culture, and is a puppet show performed on the water with the puppetiers standing in the water behind a screen.

Today we are going to see Ho Chi Minhs' place of rest.

Miss you all, and of course, missing sandwiches too : )
