Today started at 6.30am as the cave was 4 1/2 hours drive away. We've done so many bus journeys now that the time isn't really an issue. The two 10p sized holes in my window were an inconvience especially as it was a very rainy windy day- more on that later
After the bus we got onto a boat and headed for the cave.
Inside cave was like succession of Louise Bourgeois sculptures- I was in my element.
On returning to Hue the rain had clearly been coming down heavily all day. The mini bus dropped off other people and we laughed as they stepped out into ankle and shin high waters. We should have guessed something was wrong when we were one of the last to be picked up but were not the first to be dropped off.
The guide informed us that the bus couldn't get down our road and that he would walk us back. He walked with us until it got shin high, pointed and retreated.
The path leading to our hostel? - thigh high.
