During Kaye´s visit we also went up to the mountains. Tam Dao was close enough for a day trip. Cecilia and David joined us.
It´s a bit tricky to get the boys motivated for a walk in the sticks. But I think they enjoyed the view and fresh cool air. And all the bugs you could find along the path. They were happy at least until they got hungry. We tried the walk 4 km to the waterfall but the snacks we brought for the kids wasn´t enough. We had to turn back to feed them at the local restaurants. Maybe next time we have learned our lesson.
At a quick look Tam Dao´s like a small alpine village in France. The tiny serpentine roads going up the mountain, narrow but high houses on the slopes. Very beautiful. I would like to go there and stay over a weekend. I think there is a nice resort on the slopes somewhere. With a pool.
If you want you can read more and look at pics at the link "read more" down below to your right.
Parts of Tam Dao village.
To bad it was a misty day otherwise I think the view would have been even more spectacular. It´s so green up there.
Feeding time. Pho Ga is a safe bet. But two of us did not order pho. We did not get what we ordered. That´s Viet Nam in a nutshell. You are lucky if it turns out the way you want.
As usual the white people´s the attraction of the day. And Bonzan of course. It looks like she´s hiding behind Carol. When Ossi joined them, all they wanted was to take pics of him. But he refused. His tired of getting all that attention.
What to do if Ossi hide when the camera comes out. Take a picture when he does not know about it. A good place to do that is from the car.
