Kuala Lumpur to Vietnam
Kuala Lumpur was a surprising city with lots to see and do, an amazing skyline of towers, domes and skyscrapers.
We had a lovely evening with Chris and Julia and even showed them our accommodation, not surprisingly they did not want to swap for the night – they had a junior suite in the Majestic whereas we had a box room in China Town see the pictures.
We’re now in North Vietnam, we spent a couple of days in chaotic Hanoi, lots of traffic and noise.
Back on our bikes and really enjoying the freedom and peace and quiet. The views are stunning, the temperature is really hot it is like cycling into a freshly opened oven door but worth it, it is like stepping back in time.
The people are a little reserved but happy to smile and say hello if we make the first move.
Our diet continues to be noodles or rice but now it is served in a soup or broth no wonder we’re losing weight, it is really hard to take on calories, the most calorific thing we eat or drink is beer and fortunately for us it is cheaper than tea and available everywhere a real contrast to Java.
We only have a 15 day visa for Vietnam, so we are slowly making our way to the Laos border.
Hope everyone is well
Take care until our next up date
Love Gary and Ginette
