Right, where were we…? Oh that’s right; we’d just left Sagada and were both heading north to a quaint little town by the name of Vigan. Little did we know how beautiful it was going to be, it looks like an old Southern European town.
The hotels here were pretty expensive, but Stanley used his negotiation skills and said he would pose for a picture if we could have the room for half price, and they said it was OK!
we spent a few days here before touring the rest of The Philippines. Stanley was having a great time. So was I in fact, so much so that we forgot to take photos together. But we got a few of the stunning scenery before we left.
Because of this Stanley was disappointed, and asked me to take more pictures of him doing local things. I asked him what he meant and he said, “Well, in Vietnam you could take some pictures of me eating with chopsticks. I don’t think you took any photos of me doing that in The Philippines.” I agreed, and on the first day in Vietnam I made sure I got a photo of him eating a dish called ‘boon tit noong’ which is basically a bowl of Vietnamese noodles with beef, various vegetables and spring rolls. As you can see, he enjoyed it!
And that’s pretty much it from Vietnam. As you can see Stanley is about to have a nice long bath getting himself mentally prepared for Cambodia, where we have agreed to do some volunteer work. The school didn’t really want me to be honest; they wanted Stanley because of his negotiation skills and his ability to speak English, Thai and Chinese, even though he is made out of paper (which goes to show you can achieve anything you want if you work hard enough). So our next post will most likely be at an orphanage showing us passing on our skills to children in need. Until then, have a good day and we’ll see you soon!
