First full day in Vietnam consisted of a four-hour private coach ride to Ha Long Bay, which is a top vacation spot in the region.
Along the way we made a stop so that we could, as our local guide said, use “the happy rooms.” I was like, um, I thought this was a National Geographic Journeys tour? Turns out it’s just a euphemism for the toilet because you’re happy after you’ve used it.
The venue is also a place that employs people with disabilities who are engaged in various forms of art. Hey for only $130 you can have a massive marble Buddha mailed to your house. Well, you don’t have to twist my arm to but nice artwork directly from the artist!
