Met our guide and our 'tourmates' (does that word exist); all of them are Caucasians except of course our guide. As Long (our guide) have explained the ride will take about 1 hour and a half going to the river banks, so he said that we have a stopover for short bathroom break. I was thinking the place would will be at a gasoline station or a convenience store. We stopped at a handicraft store but this is not just an ordinary store, the beautiful artworks are made by physically challenged victims of the so-called agent orange. (will explain about agent orange in Day 3 adventure). The establishment is a government subsidized project to help the victims, i wonder if we also have these kinds of projects in our country.

And for the first time, I let a snake crawl on my shoulder. It feels weird, creepy and slimy. My face says it all. haha! They also sell bottled cobras which they believed could cure diseases.
After the coconut candy experience, we had lunch, a very interesting lunch indeed. Then after lunch we went back to the port where our van is waiting for us to go back to the city.
