Sapa Day 2 continued....

21st October 2015


I didn't know loofahs came out of a dried vegetable/fruit!

When grown this is eaten, when dried the outer layer is peeled off...


....when shaken the seeds drop out.


 Farmers were burning the old rice plants....


.....a hedge of hot chilli peppers...


.....carpenters at work...


.....wood is being cut on the floor using a machete type knife...


....this made me smile....


....when we were walking in this area there was the constant sound of running water...


....lots of ducklings going under the fence....



....wonderful flowers and leaf shapes...


....a young man fishing with a basket...


....a bamboo water wheel, we crossed the wobbly bridge in the picture.

Back at our hotel and this lady was going home with her child strapped to her with fabric!


Our last meal with Lang and James (our guides ) before we boarded the night train back to Hanoi.


We flew to Danang today and we are in a beautiful hotel with a pool, might just have to have a dip tomorrow!
