Entering the caves

The caves we went into were only recently discovered.  We accessed it by boat from Phuong Nha town.  The boat ride on the Son river itself was a very pleasant ride.  Interestingly, there seemed to be many Catholic inhabitants here in the communist country.  The lady who steered the boat from the front said that almost everyone running the boats were Catholics……

When we entered the caves in was nothing short of spectacular.  Photographs do them an injustice.  Those using cell phones struggled in the low light condition.  I forgot to bring the tripod so had to cranked up the ISO….  Luckily that camera has an image stabilizer.  It really helped!!!

The heat was a killer.
