Flag of Vietnam  ,

Today I hired a bike to find my way around. My motorbike riding is getting better and better. 

The first place on the list was the lighthouse, after getting a little lost I found the way.  It was definitely fun getting directions in Vietnamese. 

The problem was the street started as a little dirt path then turned in to a big three lane sealed road.  Strange!!  I couldn't see a truck making the first 50 metres of the road. 

Oh well, the lighthouse was a bit of an anticlimax after the trip up and the great views. 


Next it was off to the giant Jesus statue, I couldn’t take the bike up so had to walk up in the sun. 

Why do I always walk up stairs or a hill at midday, do I never learn.  After giant Jesus, the plan was to go to Hon Ba pagoda. 

But I couldn’t be bothered to walk across the sea to the small island that the pagoda is on.  So I settled on a picture, then it was time to get the bike back.
