It was good, but as I'd already eaten stuff on the street, I wasn't terribly hungry.
Today, we didn't really do much--got up, had breakfast, and took a bus to Ha Giang. It was a six hour ride--though I don't think we drove any faster than 40 mph, so I can't say how far away Ha Giang really is from Hanoi. The bus was rather interesting because it was a sleeper bus. Instead of regular seats it had reclined ones--and two levels. They'd have been more comfortable if they were slightly longer--and if the bus wasn't weaving and honking to avoid stuff on the road. I can't tell exactly what they were because I was on a bottom bunk and couldn't see over the window. I assume it was to get around the motorbikes on the road--because there's a million of them and there appears to be a system of honking communication here in Vietnam between bikes, cars, and buses. I can't really tell you how it works, but it makes sense to them. I do know that you should honk before you pass a corner so you don't need to stop and check if someone else is coming.
I'm at a hotel in Ha Giang because Thuy's home doesn't have a room for me. She made me dinner at her home and I met her husband--her kids were at tutoring so I didn't get introduced to them yet. Some of her students came by, though, and we talked for a bit. They were really excited to see me. Thuy's got to work this week, so I think during the day I'll be on my own, but this should give me a chance to relax and unwind. I will be able to explore a bit and she and her husband were going to take me to the border--apparently this village is a stone's throw from China.
