It was a strange feeling when we got to the first village. In about 300 meters a two lane road shifted to a tiny little village road and, it seemed like we had nowhere to go. We had to go through the village on really small roads and alleys to get to the other side where we found agricultural areas. It was nice to get out to the countryside. I miss that a lot. Going through the greenery finally led us to the village Hòa Bình.
This day was very hot. When we left it was kind of cloudy so I did not bring a long sleeved shirt. Bad mistake. My arms was really red in the evening. Hòa Bình had of course a Bia Hoi (pub). It was just noticeable. We had to ask if it was a bia hoi and not someones living room. After the run in the sun it was heaven to drink their beer. Soo nice and cool. And soo cheap (5000 VND=1,5 SEK), so we decided to drink two.
On our way home we stopped at Van Phuc silk village. Both Johan and I found nice silk pajamas. Like the ones the old Vietnames guys wear out on the streets in the evenings. It´s very comfortable. I found out today that its not silk and I will probably go back and complain. Why is it always such a hustle to buy things in Vietnam? Anyway - the pajamas is very comfortable even if it´s not silk.
We will definitely do a trip like this again. It was a lot of fun.
