    Co Tu

    August 28, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    8.00 am start today in an American Jeep, real basic, open sided but did have a plastic top, and knees under our chins, good fun. Top speed was 35mph and the driver loved every minute of it, he was very good at dodging trucks, cars, motorbikes, dogs & cattle. We went to a factory where they made marble statues and every else as well. Great stuff. We had lunch with a Co Tu family, lovely old man and at 93, very sprightly. He played a couple of instruments for us then insisted he share his pet cobra with us, horrible!!! Then showed us an even bigger one. Yuk, yuk & yuk. Great to talk to him about the war though. On to another village high up in the mountains, they played their music and sang for us. Bach home at 5pm. Off on our big journey home tomorrow.Read more
