Our last stop before flying to Dubai
21.08.2008 28 °C
We loved Hanoi but could only spend two days there before flying to Bangkok where we would spend a week relaxing before flying to Dubai to live.
Our plan had been to go to Sapa but a cyclone that hit the area killing over a hundred forced us to change our travels. We talked to tourists who had been stuck there for over a week waiting for transport to get out. Apparently they tried a 'test train' which costs tourists up to $80US (when it was normally 15-20) and failed after the first KM or so!
While we were in Bangkok we visited the snake farm - the man leading the show asked Chris and I to come down and have a Python wrapped around our necks for good luck and a long life together.
We thought it would be a good omen before we set off to live in a new country
(He made Chris kiss my by the way - its all part of the show!)
