On to Sapa...

Waking up nice and early after staying at the home stay up in the small town in Lao Cai we enjoyed a great breakfast and then wandered back down to stroll through the small market that we had walked through the evening before. That next morning was completely different, with an incredible crowd gathered selling anything at all you could want.
After finishing up snapping tons of photos we returned to the van for another long trip through the hills to the town of Sapa. A small town where lots of different tours of the surrounding countryside all start from - we were staying there for two nights and had a 3 hour hillside walking tour planned.

We got in and took a quick stroll around the town, it's cute but very touristy and with of shops selling cheap versions of Columbia and Northface jackets.
It looked great, and we were excited about getting up bright and early the next day so that we could head out for our good three hour walk.

Tomorrow evening I fly up to Toronto to meet up with Tina for the weekend. Tina headed up to Canada on Wednesday to spend time with friends and family, so until we are back on Monday there will be another quick break in the telling of our Vietnam trip - sorry about that.
