A quiet day, although quite busy. I had to hang around the bathroom in preparation for a test, I will spare the gruesome details. Nevertheless I did set up the bike on the wind trainer and pumped up the tyres, did the usual round of washing and spent forever cleaning the shower and bathroom. (I'm on a roll after yesterdays kitchen scrubbing). Sent some long newsy emails to Bob as well now that there were more important issues than (stifle yawn) the State of Origin.
Lai Chau is an out of the way place about 100km north, and 4 hours drive, from Dien Bien Phu. It is also one of the hottest places in Vietnam, during the summer months of June and July when temperatures can climb to 40oC. During the rainy season the town is prone to severe flooding from the Da River. Nevertheless the scenery around Lai Chau is quite breathtaking and worth the effort involved in getting there.
The effort involved getting in Bob getting there was a 90km cycle. I don't know when I will hear from him, communication is getting more difficult.
