Ha Long Bay
The US team, riding on junks in HaLong Bay. We are the ones in the front of the boat dangling our legs off; in a moment, one of the crew will come and scold us and tell us to sit properly further back.
The boats remind us of motorcycles on the streets; so crowded, pushing and honking.
The bay, however, is magical. Ha Long? Not long enough.....
Afterwards we endure the long bus ride to return to Hanoi. The coaches go into meetings to talk about scores and medals.
