Just one thing in addition to yesterday’s blog entry: what happens in the mind of the first soul that decided that a stunningly beautiful bay that attracts millions of tourists is a mighty swell place to empty their garbage can into?
I can’t believe the tonnes and tonnes of garbage that floated past in the most visited parts of Halong Bay. I started to collect some at the quiet beach we had our sunset swim in, but it was just no use: everytime I picked up a discarded plastic bag, another one came floating by.
But there might be hope: our boat actually sailed back to pick up an accidentally dropped Pringles-can. Now if everybody does that… *sigh*.
