Today’s route was between Nha Trang to Nhin Hoa. I’m sure you all know exactly where that is. It was 31K (I’m not going to convert it to miles because it’s high time we all learned the metric system!) Tonight’s accommodations and the rest going forward are described as “unglamorous and utterly simple.” I guess that means no watching Glee or 30Rock. Which is fine with Marty because he says everyone in the group is incredibly nice. Paul (the organizer) said while the people attracted to a do-good adventure like this are always nice, this is a particularly good bunch. That’s good news because Marty was a bit under the weather– and someone needs to take of my honey! He’s not sure if it’s something he ate plus the jetlag and lack of sleep. I think another part could be because he misses me and Memphis.
He said he’ll probably be off the internet grid for several days so I’m not sure the next time I’ll hear from him. They are off to M’Drak (?) tomorrow in the Central Highland where they will ” ride past ponds filled with lotus flowers” according to his itinerary. Lotus flowers? Those really exist beyond my Chinese delivery menus?
Will keep you posted when I hear anything.
