Just a brief update from Vietnam.
We had a great day today. Paths were rather treacherous again due to the rain the previous night, but it was drier, so more humid as well. We passed a few picturesque villages again and had lunch in a private home. As the rain had made the path up to tonight’s home stay too difficult to negotiate for the scooters carrying our overnight gear we had to repack our bags and take anything we need tonight and tomorrow morning in our rucksacks. Our accommodation is not too far from a waterfall with a lagoon, perfect for a bath. Some of us made the most of this and washed our hair and clothes in the lovely clean water – obviously with Lush soap so not polluting the river. We’re sitting here now enjoying our last night in a home stay with beers, gin and rum waiting for our dinner.
Above is a picture of the first members of our group venturing into the river and below are Roger and Jay van Bear with their rum. They are great company 🙂
