Boring Bus Time

A travel blog entry by peterprest

... take to Lao for example a tonne of cigarettes or massive sacs full of God Knows what. We then had a relatively straight forward trip to the border the bus was quite full and the back two rows were taken up by packages but it wasn't too bad. At the border Tom had to borrow money off out dodgy driver since we had brought exact money for the visa but then being corrupt they threw on extra stamp charges etc. which we ...

I had been apprehensive about my journey to Vietnam for some days. My fears were founded on the annoying realisation that I was only allowed to cross ...

Last few Days of Nam

Day 11

Morning spent in the mechanic opposite the hotel, who fixed both Dave's bike 'Bratt' of an electrical problem and 'Princess' of some chugging and then refused to accept any payment whatsoever. Sometimes people just want to feel that they helped, and in Vietnam you find quite a few of them here and there.
