VUNG RO BAY
"We leave early to cycle to Tuy Hòa. 80 km of climbing and descending await us. But the wind doesn't really play an important role today. We first cycle through the daily market. That's always a madhouse! Ducks are dangling in plastic bags on handlebars, (the head protrudes from the top of the bag) and looks around them, quacking with indignation. They have no idea what happened to them. A bag of fresh herbs hangs from the same steering wheel.
An old woman begs from us, rich whites. She points to her rice hat that looks worn out. I understand that she is ready for a new one and we donate a little something. A radiant smile is our reward."
