    Vietnam - day 2

    May 15, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

    Today we woke up super early to catch our 6.30am bus up to Sapa! We finally arrived at 1pm after our bus breaking down and having to swap buses haha! We met mama shushu at the bus stop who was the cutest smallest lady in the whole world! Our friend Ben from home was joining in Sapa so we reunited with him and a Dutch girl who was also joining and headed for a Vietnamese lunch! Set off in a group of 6 of us with Mama shushu for a 4 hour trek through the sapa hills as the sun set - it was absolutely stunning. The views were incredible and Mama’s laugh was the cutest thing ever! Arrived at her house at about 5pm and said bye to the people who had been on our trek! We hung out here with beers and met the other people staying with mama shushu - there were 8 of us or so! She served the most delicious dinner and there was so much of it! We then all drank rice wine with her and a Dutch girl bought a ukulele so we sang along to songs she sung - such a good day!Read more
