What happens when you drop Amy in the middle of a moutain village? , 5 May 2009

I had to buy a new bag in Sapa, my bag from India had died and there
was no way to fix it. I know I'm not supposed to have luxuries such as
bags on this trip, but I like having a shoulder bag to carry round on
a daily basis as it's more convenient than a rucksack.

So when my Indian bag died I had no troubles finding a replacement in
Sapa. I really do think you could drop me in the wilderness and I'd
still come back with a nice new bag. The bag is in the style of the
Sapa Hill tribes, hand-woven and really bright and funky! I love it.

But that's not where the story ends. Oh no, because not only did I
fall across a lovely handbag in the wilderness, I also found a purse
to match it. Now I didn't really need the matching purse. In fact I
didn't need it at all. So I left it and tried to forget about. I
couldn't, I tried, I really tried, but I couldn't. I worked out how
much Dong I would need for the next day and had just enough spare to
buy the purse. It was meant to be! I know have a lovely matching bag
and purse. Love it!
