Fragrant Hills


The Fragrant Hills are a quick trip by public bus away from our apartment in Beijing (if the traffic is light). The hills are famous for their Fall colors, and they get terribly crowded when the leaves start to change. Luckily, we were there a little before that.

Islands in Halong Bay45 views... When we booked the tour in Hanoi, we paid extra to be able to spend the first night on the boat, and the second night in a hotel. But while we motored toward Cat Ba we were told that there was no room available for us, so that we would have to sleep in the hotel. The same fate befell a young English couple as well, and together the four of us spent a fair amount of time arguing with the unsavory tour leader (pictured on the fish farm, above) about what we had paid for and what we were going to get. ...mudmine
A funeral procession49 viewsAs we returned from the caves, this funeral procession passed along the waterway in front of us. It was too far away for us to be able to see much, but the music they played--a deep, slow drumbeat beneath high, swirling horns and crashing cymbals--echoed across the water.mudmine
Bicycle built for two54 viewsThis is how many couples get around. Chinese bicycles are quite sturdy, with a metal platform on the back for carrying vegetables, newspapers, or wives. mudmine
