      Lang Son, Vietnam

      March 7, 2016 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      On a long day from Cat Ba island to the north to explore the mountains on the Chinese frontier, I ran into a bit of automotive trouble of the donut variety. A young lady, ostensibly making a very urgent bakery delivery, walked out into my lane in a small rural town and forced me to make a maneuver to avoid her. In doing so, I hit a slick patch and both the bike and I went down. In my mind, I sacrificed life and limb to save those baked goods (and the baked good angel carrying them). Yet, when I came to my senses in the middle of that rural road, I noticed a spattering of mini doughnuts and jelly covering the pavement. It was nothing short of a tragedy

      Several locals helped me and my motorcycle off of the road, gave me painkillers and ice, and directed me to the nearest hospital. I drove there, got an x-ray, and was addressed by the doctor in the least comforting way possible: an nonchalant shrug and the word "Ok". Being unable to walk or put any weight on my right foot, I slowly made my way back my motorcycle and rode another 3 hours to the city of Lang Son, where I plotted my recovery. A full day's ride from Hanoi, I decided to rest for the evening and morning, then book it back to Hanoi to heal in the cheap accommodation of the big city.

      Entlang der Lasterroute

      November 5, 2016 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

      Heute geht es entlang der Transportroute nach Lang Son. Der Straßenbelag wechselt von kaputtgefahren, über Baustelle, bis neu asphaltiert. In einer Baustelle möchte Michael ein Laster überholen, aber dann wird es zu eng. Am Ende steckt er zwischen Lastern fest und es geht nichts mehr voran. Nach ein paar Minuten Hektik geht löst sich das Ganze wieder auf. Danach fährt Michael wieder etwas vorsichtiger.
      Neben der Straße ist die Reisernte in vollem Gange, das ist eine knochenhart Arbeit.
      Am Samstag Abend in in Lang Son einiges los. Wir finden eine gut besuchte Bia Hoi, bestellen einen Lau Thap Cam - gemischter Hot Pot - und lassen uns überraschen was auf uns zukommt. Wir probieren fast alles, essen aber nicht alles auf.
