From Hanoi we headed out to Ha Long Bay, a beautiful chain of islands East of Hanoi and the departure point for many Vietnamese boat people fleeing to Hong Kong in '70s and '80s. We stayed overnight on a boat. It was very peaceful and a world apart from the mayhem back in Hanoi.


This morning we flew from Hanoi to Bangkok and said our goodbyes to Kara. It was her first real Asia-experience, and she handled it like a pro. Right now we are on a flight heading from Bangkok to Auckland where we will arrive on Sunday morning before starting work again on Monday. Sob.
