Night on the Inner X Floating Homestay, Lan Ha bay, Cat Ba

The view from inside our little home for the night was great, we spent so much time just gazing into the island mountains. Below is our host for the night, Chuck. The man spoke better English than some of my coworkers, and was a joy to talk to.

Mitsy washes her hands :P

Chuck was a very good chef, here he is making us french fries, twice fried for extra delicious crunchiness.

Plenty of stars out. There were faint sounds of conversation, and generators in the distance. It was very quiet though. Below, Chuck fishes out our dinner from the water and then prepares it for a big hot pot.

Below are some of the inside parts of the squid, he wouldn’t tell me what they were before I tried it, I later found it’s all the reproductive organs and liver. Interesting texture but it tasted good.

One of Chuck’s friends tried to eat the meat around the beak of the cuttlefish, it was a little tough.

It was an awesome night hanging out with these fellas, drinking Chuck’s dad’s rice wine, saying the Vietnamese version of cheers every time we took a sip (sounded like zo!).
