Jan 9, 2017 - Mai Chau and the sick few days...

Sunday was the first of our long drive days. We were heading down for a night in Mai Chau, a little countryside town surrounded by mountains and local villages to do a bit of cycling and see some some of the lifestyle outside of the town. Unfortunately I has started to feel a bit sick the in the morning and this got bad to worse as the day went on. The only advantage to this was getting into the car to start the journey I promptly fell asleep, where I stayed for most of the drive. We stopped for a quick coffee along the way at a local...

We drove West from Hanoi, past rice fields, busy villages and interesting limestone formations and we got progressively higher until we were at the top of a pass in Hoa Binh province overlooking the town of Mai Chau.

"Wrong Turn, Right Direction - Lost" Mai Chau, Vietnam February 28, 2008 (written Hanoi, 29 February 2008) The driver (Mr. Khier) turned the wrong way while the guide (Mr. Tran Binh Nguyen) was sleeping. He had asked me earlier if it was ok if he took a nap (the guide not the driver!) I had never been asked this before, but since I was the only tourist in the van, I didn't see why not. I had been enjoying the endless rows of bicycle repair shops and tons of trash along the road earlier in the day. As we went in the opposite direction past...
