Halong Bay Vietnam-Party Cruise Day #2

Yesterday, I awoke roughly about 8:00 am on the cruise, and went to breakfast with the two folks from my room. The breakfast was standard, just eggs and toast. We sat at a large table off roughly 10 folks, and the conversation at breakfast was about the action the previous night, or the lack thereof. Most mentioned that how it was the quietest party cruise they have been on. Most have been drinking in the afternoon, and couldn't keep going at all.

After breakfast, came the cooking class-how to make egg rolls. Rather then make the egg rolls, i decided to take the few hours and watch the scenery on deck, which was really cool. The islands jutting out of the sea and the other boats in the distance with the islands, as the ship went sailing. I was out there alone while everyone else was rolling eggs rolls.


Around 12:15, we we're told to get off the boat and take the tender to the bus back home. It was a long bus ride, and i got back to Hanoi, to the same hostel, at around 5:00 pm. I just rested and used the computer. I then went out for dinner at roughly 8:00 pm. i walked along the heated streets, and had dinner at the same place a few days before, where I fought with the woman over the price. They recognized me, and made sure i knew what the price was. Their kids thought it was funny, and took pics of me with their cell phone. I then took pics of them with their cell phone. The food was good (pho-soup with noodles and meat), and then I took a walk around-got lost, and found my way back to the hostel.
