In the middle of nowhere

Cua Ong, northern Vietnam.

I feel like on another planet. We can’t find anyone who speaks english, finding rooms and meals is becoming an hard task: this is so amazing! People look us with a strange curiosity, Nicola says we are like stars. And it’s true, seems that they had never seen a western face.

Anyway, Vietnamese people are always extremely kind and happy to know us (even with the communication barrier): at the end of a nice dinner in restaurant (each one of us payed less than 4$) the owners (a family I think, but they were so many and of so different ages) offered us to sit down at their table and join their tea break. It was funny, they were interested in my tobacco and in the strange way I roll my cigarettes, we ended up with a cigarettes roll up work shop!

Tomorrow will be on Van Don island: I’m dreaming a bungalow on the beach.
