We arrived in Hue ( a four hour bus ride from Hoi An) - all was well until we were asked to show our PASSPORTS when we realised we had LEFT them BEHIND in Hoi An!!!!
You should have seen the look on Chris face when he went to get them from his money belt and realised they weren't there!! It was my fault though as I had checked out of the last hotel and forgotten to ask for them.
Luckily the hotel we were staying in had fantastic staff who were able to ring the hotel (thank god we had kept their hotel card!) and organise for them to be sent on the next bus!
We only had one full day to spend in Hue so decided to go on a city tour. We went around the old city, a couple of tombs of old kings, a craft village where we learnt how to make the cone hats and incense sticks and a garden house.
We caught our last (thank god) sleep bus to Hanoi which was an event of its own...
Just when we though the bus was full, (well it was as there were NO beds left) a family of 8 got on and squashed up to the back of the bus (where we were) and made themselves comfortable in the aisle. During the night I woke up everytime the lady next to me pulled my blanket off and onto her!
It was an experience
