    Sapa, Vietnam

    February 28, 2017 in Vietnam

    In Sapa verbleef ik in een homestay. Samen met een paar andere toeristen uit Duitsland en Denemarken hebben we twee wandeltochten gemaakt door de rijstvelden. De eerste dag was het nogal mistig en hebben we niet veel van het uitzicht gezien. De tweede dag daarentegen was prachtig. De rijstvelden gecombineerd met de lichte mist gaven hele mooie uitzichten.

    Sapa

    August 31, 2011 in Vietnam

    After a rather scary drive up into the mountains we arrived at Sapa, had a look around a local market, had lunch with a local family and booked into our hotel.
    The markets were particularly interesting, as up to quite recently before we arrived they were used as a place to procure a wife! Single girls paraded around a square in an attempt to capture the eye of a suitor. An interesting quirk though was that it was quite acceptable to kidnap a girl from the square, and if the kidnapping family could hold onto her for one month the girl was obliged to marry into the family!Read more

    Sapa Hills

    September 1, 2011 in Vietnam

    I wasn't feeling the best, so had a sleep in whilst everyone else took a nice :) hike up Sapa Hill. (It would probably have killed me!)
    When they got back we all went to visit Cat Cat Village - unfortunately another Looooooooooong walk! I did survive. Just!
    Sapa is just incredibly beautiful and serene, and the people were just lovely. The local moochers were spectacularly persistent and friendly, I thought we'd managed to adopt a couple to bring home! Nowhere is safe!
    Sapa is a must-see on a Vietnam trip.

    Sapa

    February 11, 2016 in Vietnam

    V 7 rano uz jsme se vezli ve spacim autobuse smer sever, Sapa. Mesto lezi v nadmorske vysce 1500 m a je obklopene horami, ktere se tahnou az za hranice Ciny (ktere lezi jen par km odsud).
    Hned na nadrazi nas odchytla skupinka babicek, jak jim Jurek rika (ta nejstarsi mela snad 30). Malinkate zenstiny v krojich, patrici k jednomu ze 4 mistnich kmenu, nas zacaly lakat na trekking do jejich tradicni vesnice. Ok, tak zitra pujdeme.
    Sapa je hodne turisticka misto. Hotely a restaurace vsude, obsazeno mistnimi turisty, kteri vyrazili na vanocni dovolenku.
    Vsichni tu zvykaji cukrovou trtinu a na trznici prodavaji hory koreni, susene zaby, hady zalite v koralce... Kdyz jsme se vymanili ze zajeti prodejechtivych zenstin a deticek (tahajicich na zadech mladsi sourozence), zasli jsme na hot pot, obrovsky hrnec, co jsme si v nem uprostred stolu varili zeleninu, tofu, houbicky a cele kure rozrezane na kousky - vcetne paratku a hrebinku na hlave.

V 9 si nas "babicky" vyzvedly u trznice a uz jsme sly. 30leta hlavni organizatorka, tehotna 17leta tak aspon v 7. a 16leta stydlina. V krojich mistniho kmene, s krasnymi cernymi dlouhymi vlasy nas vedly nejdriv do kopce nad Sapu s nadhernymi vyhledy na mesto a potom do udoli, kde lezi jejich vesnice.
    Po asi 5 hodinach (pomaloucke) chuze jsme dosli do chaloupky mezi ryzovymi policky, kde nas privitala hora usmudlanych deti a opili manzele, kteri se prolivali "happy water" a slavili novy rok. Manzel nasi pruvodkyne je policista, pracuje 2 dny v tydnu a vydelava milion mesicne. Slusny jisty prijem. K tomu manzelka dovede cas od casu turisty... nemaji se spatne.
    Vecereli jsme ryzi se slaninou, vynikajici jarni zavitky a zeleninu. Spolu s mistnimi, kteri nam povidali, jak to tady chodi. Pres "leto" pestuji ryzi (sklizi tu jen jednou rocne), zeleninu a kukurici. Pres "zimu" maji navstevy a vyrabi kroje, naramky a dalsi veci na prodej. Chlapi anglicky neumi, zenske sprechti docela slusne - pry se naucily od turistu.

    Sapa

    February 13, 2016 in Vietnam

    V noci fucelo, az to vypadalo, ze se nad nami chaloupka rozpadne. Snidane byla spis brunch. Nez se zenskym podarilo nasmazit hromadu palacinek, ktere jsme nasledne kombinovali s vajicky nebo cukrem a medem (ti odvaznejsi se vsim dohromady :-)), bylo skoro 10.
    Za naprosteho azura se zhnoucim sluncem nad hlavou jsme pak stridave pochodovali podel silnice a pres ryzova policka. Balancovani na zaschlych okrajich terasek bylo dobrym testem rovnovahy, ktery nekteri odnesli botama nasaklyma hnijicim smradlavym bahynkem. Stane se :-).
    Cilova rovinka do Sapy mela do rovinky daleko a do strmeho kopce jsme si slusne makli. Ale ty vyhledy na ryzove terasy, kam az oko dohledne!
    O asi 13 km dal a 5 hodin pozdeji jsme byli v Sape, odkud jsme se jeste odpoledne svezli minivanem do 100 km vzdalene vesnice Bac ha. Zitra tady maji velky market.
