Been a few days as on our journey through the highlands no internet and at moment cannot upload any pictures. The last few days however have been very eventful travelling with the easy riders was definatley a good decision. I recommend them to anyone visiting Vietnam. They showed us the culture, society and history of the central highlands and Vietnam as a whole. If this sounds boring it was not far from it the best thing we have done on our trip to date. We visted obscure hill tribes who very welcoming and happy with our gifts of a few pens and sweets (video to be uploaded soon).
Duc and Nghiep our guides both lived through the Vietnam war were extremely knowledgeable and were very friendly and happy to help. They showed us the HO Chi Minh Trail and when talking about the war as they lived in seemed very vivid. We got to meet many local people and see how they made a living be it from rubber trees, wood carving or rice. It was strange to see in some areas that the landscapes were only just starting to develop again and regain their true beauty after being bombed by Americans over 20 years ago hence poisoning the land. Some people had only been living in some areas again for 2 or 3 years but they had managed to rebuild their livelyhoods and were happy to share this with us. Everyone we passed like to come out and look at us pass by as we were some what of a novelty for many places who had never seen a white person.
Got loads of great pics and videos as it his hard to describe the experience in words.
They dropped us off in Mui ne at a really nice beach resort with bunglows straight onto the beach (cheap too), so enjoying some beach time. Off to go sand sledging this afternoon.
The sledging on the dunes was not quite as good as expected I feel off head over heels was covered in sand from head to foot for the rest of the day. The red canyon was still good even covered in sand. Have problems with camera again at moment so maybe a little while until have pictures on site again.
