After an excruciatingly long flight I arrived in the Hanoi air terminal, and instantly jumped on board an overnight prepare heading north. I imparted a sleeper lodge to a French couple, and a young lady from Quebec.
They were all exceptionally decent, and we visited for a few hours before going to bed. Anyhow I’m a light sleeper, and nodding off on the thumping, shaking train auto turned out to be incomprehensible.
I woke up at the Lao Cai train station, close to the fringe with China, and discovered an auto to drive me a hour west, through foggy, slowing down to the Sapa town.

They chuckled at that I was so eager to catch wind of commonplace exercises like planting rice and raising bison.
