Cooking Lesson 2

SAPA: Hmong Home-Stay (Part 3 of 4)

Category : Vietnam

               As we walked the final steps that were leading up to Sue’s home her family was outside waiting for us. We got to meet her husband and four children, two girls and two boys. Language was a big barrier but they all kept smiling at us. This was a bit awkward, but it was to be expected. We were still very excited and we couldn’t wait to try and get to know all of them.   Now was time to go see where we were going to spend the night.

At this point it was follow the leader time. As we exited the hotel we started heading towards the mountains.

With it being so early in the morning it took a little bit to find our hotel. Once we arrived all the lights were off but the address matched, so we walked in. As we entered there was no one in sight.

First Moments in SAPA…

Category : Vietnam

               The first moments of SAPA were actually very interesting (now a little comical). We arrived in town around 3:30am but were able to stay in the bus a while longer due the fact a trekking guide for some other people on the bus was running late. It was very foggy, dark, and cold.   Here we saw through the fogged windows there were many colorfully dressed women who a lot of them had young children strapped to their backs.
