The story continues… but first I must say Happy New Year to all of you!!
Our 7th day of cycling in Vietnam. Always something interesting to see. Like this lady walking behind the water buffaloes.
Trying to read the billboard.
We also stopped to see this man ( injured by a land mine) making tools with old steel rods.
We left the sea side. Vietnamese do not say “China Sea”, they prefer to say :”Eastern Sea”. The lunch was typically Vietnamese with soup, rice, vegetables, tofu, meat and fruits. Always so much food !
Only 5 people from the tour (including me) and 2 guides did the 23 rolling km of the afternoon ride. It was a challenge for me but at the end, I was very happy I did. It showed me I was in good shape. I ended only few minutes behind the others. We were getting close to another city : Dalat. “The little Paris” is the nickname of this city on the mountains. We were going up to the mountains.
It is such a great part of the country to see. So much green, coffee plantations, strawberries and so many green houses for growing flowers and vegetables.
The climate around Dalat is quite different than other parts of Vietnam. We are now in Central Highlands. Warm days but cool nights. Our guide told us they have 4 seasons in one day here ! A little bit like Vancouver !! I will tell more about Dalat on my next post.
Thanks for reading !
