We discover Hanoi … Ridding bikes here is a constant pleasure between survival commando and prayers to any god: ART. Always tightened, our buttocks are super muscular, I think that soon we will be able to crack a walnut between. It’s very funny, and enjoyable anyway: yes I swear! And you get used to after a few hours it’s not that difficult.
Twinge of heart this week, as we realize that we are living the last days of our Asian tour … and especially we have virtually finished pedal on this continent: after drooled in the wind nose all along our journey in Vietnam, we were glad to leave the bikes a few days, but after 2-3 days we realize that we love these creatures and that kind of travel! About 5700 kilometers on it, we will make an accurate count before leaving the Asian territory if we have not forgotten how to count (with the hands, it’s tedious 5700).
We console ourselves with the family since Matthias parents joined us for 2 weeks for tourism in Hanoi and northern Vietnam. So we let our horses to rest some time to stroll and make all visits during the coming days.
Then it will be the land off to the last part of our year: in the US which will also be very different in culture and landscapes but also in the mode of travel … stay connected, we will talk about that later! Until then, we still have some temples to see, some rice dishes to swallow and some friends unable to speak the same language to make!
