Jim joined us for lunch today! But hardly touched his bowl of noodles and he was gone again. It was supposed only to be a coffee stop but Walter needed some fuel and the rest selflessly joined him in a very good bowl of pho. Disturbingly this pre-lunch turned out to be the only lunch we got!
We did a modest 83km today to end up in Buon Ma Thout. Some was downhill but some definitely wasn't, though we all made it on one battery with juice to spare. This is quite a big town and we wound up in a grander than usual hotel. The mauveness of the décor seems to decrease as you go up-market.
We have just looked at the altitude profile for tomorrow's segment of the get-Andrew-to-HCM-by-Wednesday campaign. Gulp. Time for an early night......
