This past month I’ve been traveling around. My brother and I did the Yunnan backpacker circuit and made it all the way up to the Tibet/Yunnan border. Kunming => DaLi -> Lijiang -> Shangri-La.
Then I made it to Hanoi, Vietnam. I really love Hanoi and the craziness of Vietnam. Got distracted with some local girls and ended up staying a whole week in Hanoi.
During that time I bought a shitty motorcycle that wouldn’t be street legal in the US, learned to ride a motorcycle in the crowded streets of Hanoi, and am now in some small village in north-central Vietnam. Progress is slow as I try to make it down to Saigon.
My bike breaks down every day. Weather is either monsoon level rain or intense heat. I’m sick of Pho. Seriously hoping I have enough good karma to bring me to Saigon in one piece.
I don’t know how Che did his motorcycle journey around South America, but in Vietnam, the only Che here is a dessert.
