Gates of Cuc Phuong's Primate Research Center39 viewsThe Endangered Primate Research center houses a bunch of langurs and gibbons, many of which were rescued or confiscated from hunters. All of the researchers are foreign-- I think it's mostly a German-run outfit.mudmine
Sunset in Halong Bay41 views... Finally, with the sunset organge fading from the horizon, we decided to go downstairs and join the others in the drinking. Even Hilary picked up a can of beer, just to be convivial. All the places at the main partying table were filled, but Hilary managed to squeeze in to help a Chinese couple join in the conversation, and I took my can of beer and my book and settled into another booth. There seemed to be lots of good cheer and laughter until the boat was approaching the dock, and the atmosphere seemed to chill and some voices became harshermudmine

Day's end at the park52 viewsAt last--we'd seen as much of the park as we could in a single afternoon. When you leave the park, you can walk right into a shopping complex. On the day we were there, some store was having some sort of grand opening or something--they had rows of jellyfish balloons flying, and lots of over-amplified techno pop blaring from a huge stack of speakers. Blurring the boundary between park and shopping center, the celebration also included a young man in a Tarzan-like costume, jumping off the tall speaker stacks and doing back flips while some guy in a suit bellowed into a microphone. Alas, this event was over by the time we left the park, so we just went home.mudmine
