People snuggled up on the bus because of the air conditioning. It's actually really hot outside. I can't remember where we were catching a bus too but we drove past some crazy factories……. Setting out in Halong Bay, our first day on the boat with the Vietnamese flag waving proudly at our side. I don't really like flags much. House boats!! I want one. Amazing landscapes, Jurassic parkish. Floating markets. The lady who ran our boat wouldn't let us buy stuff and was slapping our hands and money away when we tried to buy water from them because the stuff she was selling on her boat was about 20 times the price.
