Saw so much of the 'real' Vietnam today I don't know where to begin! ...Sarah, Kristina and I all hired these Easy Riders - motorbike guides I guess...and they took us all over the place! I saw silk being made, coffee plantation, a flower farm, waterfalls, cute local village...just loads!
I tried breaking rocks today, you bang a hole into the middle of a rock and then put a stone in the whole and whack it as hard as you can with this sledgehammer affair...I was just pathetic at it, don't know how these poor guys do it for 8 hours a day, but they wouldn't stop laughing at our feable attempts! it was so heavy! Damn hard work I tell you!
