After a Thirteen hour gruelling bus journey we arrived in a place called hue at 7 am. As usual we walk around getting lost looking for a guesthouse or hotel to stay in which someone had recommended to us. We eventually find one check in and have a well deserved rest. Everyone is shattered from the bus journey.
It's now only myself, mark and two girls called steph and laura who we had met in Halong Bay. We decided to do a boat tour on the Song huong river better known as the perfume river. We bought our ticket from reception and some guy collected us and took us to our boat. The boat reminded me something of a canal boat. There was a family living on the boat so it seemed as though we was invading there privacy, but at the end of the day it's there way to making a living. They were very welcoming. They had the cutest little baby who you may of seen in one of my pictures, who was full of smiles and loved oreo's. So we set off down the river. The journey was going to take six hours and we only had five short stop offs, so there was plenty of time for sun bathing along the way. The stop offs were different temples and pagoda's but we only entered about two of them as they were charging about $4 each time. We have seen enough temples since being in Asia so missing a few won't be a problem. We hired out some bikes at one of the temples to explore the surroundings but there was not a great deal to see. We got back to the hotel and booked our seat for the bus.
That night we went out for a nice italian and then went to a couple of bars. One which was really good called DMZ. We had a good night in there listening to music getting drunk. We also bumped in to a canadian lad called Brandon who me and mark had met on our way to laos so it was good to see him again and swap stories. This night turned out to be a night i will never forget due to his so called dirty tactics. It could of been the pinnacle turning point of our friendship, but that's just Mark for you. So lets just leave that at that, enough said.
