We have another day together in the city to look forward to tomorrow before Sunday's early start to fly to Haiphong- for Halong Bay- after which we will travel to Hanoi and Luang Prabang. It already seems soon to be flying off away on a trip, but as long as I have enough time to spend making the most of my mum's company then I will be content. She has been spoiling me by bringing me my favourite kind of Fox's biscuits as well as with lots of love and attention. For her part, she is loving the break from the snow in Yorkshire- which is in some parts up to ten feet deep- and the chance to enjoy the sunshine and Thuy's delicious cooking.
