"Dear Ms. Christine Rochelle, Thank you for your reply! Your request has been booked: tour Ha Long Bay 2 days, 1 night, 1 room with 2 beds."
The above message is the confirmation e-mail that Christine received after booking our boat tour of Ha Long Bay. Why did I highlight 2 beds, you ask? Well, this is the first time that Christine and I find ourselves sleeping separately. Normally, the receptionist at any given hotel sees the two of us - sweaty, smelly and poorly dressed American girls - and autmotically assumes that we'd enjoy sleeping together - hence the previous honeymoon suites and king-sized beds that we've gotten before. But now it is FINALLY recognized that we are not lovers on our honeymoon together but rather, just a couple of chicks tryin' to get their Bay on. Yay :-)
