Excited or nervous, but we woke at 5;30 for the second leg of our journey. Showered, filled up the water bottles, paid the bill, loaded our bike and were off at 6;45. Only 45 klm's today, heading for Cai Be, we had been told that we could get accommodation and had the words written in Vietnamese to help us.
The start of our journey was very busy, worried about just crossing the road from our hotel, we did it, loosened up and were off. I felt much better today and managed a good speed, got very brave with the traffic, didn’t flinch when the lorries went thundering passed
We rode for a total of 3 hours 48 mins, average speed 17 klm’s an hour and total distance 63 klm’s.
After a shower and rest we went for a walk, caused another stir, only tourists here, everyone shouting “Hello” at us. We stopped for a beer and soon had an audience, 15 kids along with their mothers. I asked if I could take a photo of one naughty little girl, she kept on with Roger, Mum said yes and then everyone wanted their photo taken.
We escaped, walked back to the hotel looking for somewhere to eat, the only place was alongside the busy road, bit like an open air transport café, they did sell beer though. The choice was rice or noodles, so another “Phur” for tea, and we were the only customers. £ 4;00. Total spend today £15;00 including hotel…….
