There's Kunming, small city of 6 million inhabitants perched at 1900 m of altitude, and Dalí where we will meet the released patches. We drive since that day with them in the direction of the heights of Yunnan, is simply more beautiful!
Northern Laos, between Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang is a military road open to all 5 years only. It represents for us the biggest challenge that we have never raised: Mount for 10km on an average gradient of 12%! Live with our friend cyclo James our ascent and the memorable descent that ensued.
At the discovery of one of the oldest civilization in the world!
Here it is, we are in China! More precisely in Yunnan, South West of China. A country of contrast, landscapes, arts and games, but also a country where the culture of the home is very present. Discover our first week in China!
We leave Hanoi on 9 March, en route to the border! The rain with us the first two days... Fortunately it's 20 °, there is cold, but it's not very nice, and was quickly covered with slush! The first 50 kilometres, known, it is the same thing as the arrival. Then continue on roads with little traffic, along the river Song Hong, with rice fields all around.
Dernier épisode de la saison ! Prochaine saison : La Chine ! Cette semaine on part d’Hanoï, direction Lao Cai, au Nord. La région est vraiment sympa, on traverse de nombreux tout petits villages tout jolis 🙂 Dernier jour de repos à Lao Cai au Vietnam avant d’attaquer la Chine !

After a month in Laos, one between the Viet Nam on 22 February, by the border of Dien Bien Phu. The road on the side of Vietnamese is very damaged, that goes up and it goes down. But there are beautiful landscapes, with rice fields and other crops.
6 months! IEA... we will say that time is really accelerating. I have the impression that it was a few days on drafting the balance sheet 5 months ago!
Impressive and discipline schoolchildren to learn, despite the harsh environment.
In Laos, the teachers speak very little English, and it is not easy to find information. We will still try to tell you what we know and what we saw.
Before the season finale! This week we arrive in Hanoi, capital of the Viet Nam. It is crawling, it honks, it's good, it lives! There's this magical place that is Halong Bay, kayak closer to the water. Next week you go back to the North to finish the second season, and attacking China with Yunnan. It promises!
