Aside from constantly being woken up this morning by rosters and construction, today was the first time on the trip that I was able to sleep in past 9am. We started our morning off with a massage which was definitely needed after all the walking yesterday. The massage was very relaxing but a lot different than a massage in the US. The massage therapist was climbing on the table to pop my back and digging her elbows into me which my massage therapist does not do back home. After the massage and an amazing lunch we checked out of our hotel to leave the beautiful town of Sapa. On our way to the train station we stopped at the Taiphin village which was an interesting experience. As soon as we got to Taipan village and parked the van we were surrounded by the Red Dao’s women trying to sell us their handmade items. Taiphin wasn’t as exciting as Cat Cat but it was interesting being followed everywhere we went by the women of the village. Today was but relaxing but I’m ready to be back in Hanoi exploring the city.
