I have been here for 3 weeks now and the reason im here still is i met a girl who i have been hanging out with this week, well that's one of the reasons i also met a wicked bunch of people and we have had an excellent week and we have all decided to leave Hanoi on either Sunday or Monday. We are going to a massive Paddies day party on Saturday on our hostel roof top its gonna be a drink up to end all drink ups! We then will be cheering on the Irish lads after in the rugby (if i can still see by that point!)
The most memorable day i have had so far was 2 days ago one of the boys who runs our hostel took me and my crew on a free city tour which was excellent we went to some really cool markets and saw roasted dogs hanging up! We also saw a basket filled with dog heads!!!!! GROSS!!!!!!! haha we then saw the body of Ho Chi Min and then we were taken to a snake village.....................this is when i found the story i will always tell over the years..........we went to a place where they have snake restaurants. We went into a room where this crazy guy picked up a snake that we were going to EAT, and held it up in the air....then went on to cut it's still beating heart out and put it into a glass, the snake was still alive as the man drained its blood into a glass! He then gave the glass to my friend who drank the heart, and downed a shot of snake blood after! We went to eat in a stilt house afterwards (Toni it was pretty much like the village we went to). We then ate snake meat, grinded up snake ribs, snake soup. Then we drank snake blood, and SNAKE BILE!!!!!!!!!!!! I will never forget the taste it was green and it was disgusting! We then went on to drink 3 bottles of rice wine and were drunk beyond belief by 12pm!!!!!!! We left the place but it was at this point where i forgot the next few hours....one minute i was with everyone else......next thing i knew i looked around the room and i was in a bar that i go to all the time....by myself! I got talking to this guy then all of a sudden i looked around and thought "hold on where is everybody!" I had no idea how i got there i just wandered off but i cant remember what happened! I then went back for a barbeque and passed out on my rooftop bar. Then woke up and went back to the same bar!!!!!!!!!!!
