H2H Day 18: The Weather Clears

This was an absolutely gorgeous day of riding, with the 60km from Ngoc Hoi to Kon Tum going by in no time. The sun was shining brightly, the sky was an azure blue, and the rolling hills of this part of Vietnam made for exciting cycling. This was the best weather day we've had yet, although a stiff crosswind towards the end made the final hills a bit more difficult than they should've been. The rest of this post is going to be visual, since I'm running out of adjectives to describe hills and rivers and rice paddies and small towns.

First up: Dana let me use her GoPro helmet cam today, so below are two videos taken with it. Watching them almost feels like watching a video game, but they will allow you to see what things look like here.

Finally, here are a bunch of pictures from the beautiful day.

Today we have a ridiculously short ride to dispatch with: 48km from Kon Tum to Pleiku. Piece of cake.
