Whoever fell had to "catch a frog" apparently.got by with NO falls. Finished up totally covered in mud, thick and caked. Feet totally immersed under the mud.
Homestay was all of us in one Zao house, wooden beds, mosquito nets, singing ourselves to sleep, karaoke style after many bottles of rice wine - happy water!
Funny night,including the bleeding, concussed Anh, a pool hall and lots of home-cooked Zoy food - a banquet in fact. Lots of wake-ups for pain relief,
Amir was told to just stay awake all night to stop his snoring - like a crazy pyjama party. Matt was left feeling a little guilty after throwing Anh up amongst the rafters and splitting his brow.
2nd day turned out to be ANOTHER trek, which 6 of us opted out of, thank god! It was harder than yesterday.
On the way back stopped at a river and bridge which was a stone's throw to CHINA, pretty mind-blowing!
After bussed back to Sapa where 5 shared each hotel room for 4 hrs to shower, re-group and prepare for ANOTHER overnight train trip tonight!
