Today Iíve planned to reach Ha Giang, a city wehrís possible get the permit to travel in the North Area of Ha Giang region...itís easy remember names of region and her capital in Vietnam: itís the same. The road from Ha Giang to Meo Vac is a dream for a biker. The permit costs around 25 $, I think 10$ every people if you are a bunch of almost 4.

This was my first stop for a coffee

Iíve never been in a Vietnam ďbarĒ and I remained surprised by the way in that they prepare it. They put the coffee in the ďCoffee makerĒ (made in a light aluminium), then this come on a glass, after hot water and you wait to filter it.
Simple but intelligent: this could be a great souvenir.

Vietnam road accident

My hotel in Ha Giang: Iím lucky here itís possibile get the permit


The rice cookerÖanother candidate as souvenir

Iíve never seen a hotel where cars and minibus have to cross the reception to go in the parking

the permit: I can go to sleep

ohh Iíve got to dry my clotes

Today is Saturday: Iím going to Meo Vac

As Iím going I understand the big difference between landscape in Europe and here. Iím on the mountains, the roads are very similar, good but narrow, but the landscape is something amazing: no pines no fir tree, but jungle.
Sometimes I stop the bike just without a reason and I remain to look
