we had a long journey and arrived at the hotel after luchtime so we checked in and me and tony went to as western restaurant for lunch...pizza, potato and cheese and onion rings, it hit the spot!! we then booked our bus to vietnam and sent off for our visas that arrive on wednesday, we leave wednesday night!! we booked our 2 nights accomadation in dorms for the next 2 nights after evryone leaves.
before we went out to dinner everyne had to have their introduction and meet the new people which was really strange, me n tone sat to one side and waited (they chuckled at us sitting alone in the corner!!) we then went out with everyone which was weird as there seemed so many of us!! (as therehad only been 8 including xin!) we then had to say goodbye to xin, which was kind of sad, he was so funny and his laugh was awesome!! a really great guide. Xin said goodbye and left and the rest of us went to the pub for a goodbye drink, or few! We chatted lots and about the trip and then evetualkly it was time to say goodbye to joony, katie and juliette. dave, sarah and cameron (a new guy) stayed out and we had a couple of beers before heading back. we said goodbye and went back to our rooms, and with that the trip was over. me and tony had a fantastic time and would rally reccommend it to anyone, great place, great people and a really fantastic experience. Intrepid is awesome, backroads to kunming was worth every penny!!
