Tam Coc

Friday 1st February 2019, Tam Coc.

A great day with lots of interesting things to see.
I think my slog up the middle of Vietnam is over. The south and the north have all the attractions the central bit is somewhat lacklustre.
Progress was slow because I kept having to stop to explore.
Highlights were a Viet Cong military cemetery and the cathedral at Phat Diem.
I’ve mentioned before coming across unexpected little gems and the Phat Diem cathedral is definitely one of these. A mixture of Sino, Viet and European architecture it really is stunning. The inside is all wood which I hadn’t been expecting. Wonderful!
Apart from that it was the coldest day of the whole ride so far very much like an English autumn day, cold, overcast, miserable with a threat of rain.

Came across another bridge that wasn’t there. Replaced by a new one 2 kilometres away about 15 years ago I reckon

Tea could me made in the hotel room. I’ve never tasted tea quite like it but after a few cups you get used to it.
