Halong Bay

Thursday 7th February 2019, Halong Bay.
A straightforward ride today with a lovely last 25km looking out at the karst rocks rising out of the sea.
I experienced a rather unpleasant first this afternoon that I can only describe as being abused and physically assaulted. The first incident involved a gang of teenagers on motorbikes who as they passed me slapped and hit me. Thinking they had disappeared into the distance I was surprised when this happened again. They had waited down a side street for me to pass. This was repeated three times. One of the lads even removed one of his trainers to hit me with.
Then when I was overtaking a teenage girl on a bike she kicked my bike to disrupt my cycling.
Clearly some of the Vietnamese teenagers are hooligans.
I’m fine and no damage was done but it was unpleasant.
