You got all that I had in my mind, homesick :(
Reading your blog made me feel like homesick, thought that you came to explore the Islands but I still sitting on my desk and looking around *wanna fly over to*. I really like your blog, I was looking for some pictures to post on facebook for friend of mine (we will trip to flores next year) and got caught of your blog. The weather was completely hot compare to any other places in Indonesia, where I do love to spent time near by the beaches as you stories told me Flores people just played in the water but not good for swimming *I agreed*. Still lots of things and culture in Larantuka or I could say East Flores you need to know like whale, weaving, some small party, easter season in Larantuka and many more. Oh no, I bet everybody wanted to explore Flores Islands including me for next year 2013. I\'m the islands lady, flores - larantuka. Thanks for the nice story ...

Travel from Hanoi to Yangshuo
Plan to travel from Hanoi to Yangshuo in April 2012. Please advise what's the best way to get there. What's the cost like and how long is the journey ?

Travel from Hanoi to Yangshuo
Ivy, I took the direct train from Hanoi to Nanning. It was very new at the time, and almost empty, so I don't know if it's still running. But according to seat61, it is. See http://www.seat61.com/Vietnam.htm#Nanning-Hanoi%20by%20train for more detail. From Nanning there are regular trains to Guilin, which is near Yangshuo (has regular minibuses or you could even take a taxi). I think there's even direct buses from Nanning to Yangshuo. Hope this helps. Daniel

Thanks Shruti, I probably should have spent more time in the South. I don't exactly remember what I wrote in this blog, it was a while ago, but once I got up to Ladakh I remember that I enjoyed myself there. The scenery in the North is great, but Manali is full of Indian tourists so it's good to get up further. What you say about white men is true anywhere in Asia. Of course there is some truth to the fact that we might in absolute terms have more money than many people on the street, but what annoys me is the way that they're driving tourists away, therefore making things worse for themselves and their country in the long run. But one has to get used to that. Thanks for your comment anyway!

Hating to agree
I read your blog just before going to Manali and was a little dissapointed that you had so many unpleasant things to say about your trip [people centric experiences]. I have recently visited and returned and have come back to comment because I felt exactly the same way in North India. The constant pushyness and the not-so-clever ways to conning people were pitiful. The natural beauty actually takes a back seat as the people there make your holiday such an unpleasant episode. Although after a certain horrible mistake we realised that we would do exactly the opposite of what we were suggested and ended up having a great time. I just wanted to come and say that please don't think that all of India is like this. The southern part of the county is very different. Here people are not very street smart but are very warm and generous. No one imposes their products and services on you and they are not friendly only with the expectation of monetory compensation. {of course I'm grossly generalising - there are exceptions everywhere} Also unfortunately India still remains an inately racist country - therefore a White man will be hounded by everyone as for some reason we all seem to think rich white man has dollars spilling from his pockets. I'm very glad that you stuck to your guns and didn't really allow people to take you for a ride..but do visit India again [the southern part primarily] and notice the vast difference in the culture and attitudes. Shruti - I'm also from the north originally but have moved to the South and love it here. Thus the suggestion.
