Houng Khe to Dong Hoi – Sehr Gut
Karma gave me a slab of ‘good’ after a rough night. There was incredible riding all day, first around lush green rice paddies with misty mountains in the distance, then into those mountains on winding steep roads. There was hardly anyone else on the road. It was certainly the best day so far and I couldn’t stop smiling.
Crackers for slags -
Mid afternoon rain and grey sky couldn’t dampen my spirits (did I mention I'm English) but I decided to skip exploring Phong Nha park, and so went straight to Dong Hoi. I pulled up to the cheap and decent Thien Long hotel where the manager and his wife speak seemingly good German. Riding around town for a while I found what I think is the only proper restaurant in Dong Hoi, near the tallest building there, Sacombank, and had some lovely cheap munch. So much fresh food so cheap in Vietnam, at EVERY place I ate, (even better than my experience of Shanghai).
