Hello from Cat Ba island - beautiful stone monoliths jut out from the still bay waters. Had great fun kayaking with Sharan around these for a couple of hours - stopped off at a beach where I accidentally shredded a couple of fingers on some razor-sharp rocks - boo! All healed now, but lesson learnt….the hard way! Back to Hanoi before moving on to Hue. Oh yes, Karaoke has been done - Ice Ice Baby!
