Escapism……Sapa

Northern Vietnam- Sapa

Sapa one of Vietnams most northern cities, people mainly go there to go hiking through the rice fields that you can see above and to meet local tribes.
After spending 20 hours or more getting there, with no toilet, we stayed here for 3 nights 4 days. The highlight of our stay was the hike we did with a local Black Hmong Tribe, Lily, to her house. We spent 4 hours walking down into the rice paddies where we then stopped for lunch at Lily’s house with her family. Amazing! Such a great day they loved telling us about thier tribe. The most amazing thing was that Lily, aged 54, had never been to school but had taught herself how to speak Vietnamese and English, she couldn’t even write her own Black Hmong langauge. Incredible, thanks Lily for a great day out.
