Day 2

For some reason I mapped this day to be a shorter one... But the hotel our support driver Nam wanted to take us to was 104km away. Eleanor rode Jim's bike and Jim procured a no-gears situp-and-beg-bike so he didn't have to sit in the support vehicle! We gave him a 30 minute head start everyone we stopped! All up we averaged 23.5 km/hr and rode for 4hrs in mud and pot holes.

Lunch was at Kim Oahn restaurant in in Thanh Hoa. They were so impressed with what we were doing that the owner gave us free lunch!! What a nice surprise! And the food... It was a banquet fit for kings and even catered for Eleanor and Mark, our two vegetarians!

Now we are in a nice looking hotel with noone in it. This may be due to warm beer served with ice!

Our Koolit aloe vera gel came in very handy as the sun is scorching us!

To tell people you are vegetarian, you say " toi anh chay" (pr. toyy un jay)
