Vietnam Sapa

 My journey will continue as long as there's the smile of people. (3:18)

We can see that a railroad line extended from the Saigon Station to the Ben Thanh Market in the 1/12500 map of Saigon at 1962. According to "the building guide" on the reverse side of the map, the present Saigon Station was a "Freight Station," and in front of Ben Thanh Market the station was the "Railway Station". The passenger station was in front of the market of in the inner-city.
The rotary is in front of the Ben Thanh Market.

There is a slender park ahead of there. The remains of the ancient structure of the station were not evident, but here was old Saigon Station.

The string of one-storied stores built along the curved rail bed. Surely, here is a vestige of a defunct railroad.

The depth of the stores conforms to the width of the double track.

By the rotary of 7 streets, a train ran in the alley to the front.

Saigon Station now, there is the trace of the freight station days.

I ride north continuously today at National highway 1. Temperature lowered very much from HCMC. The red earth spreads out, but has a feeling that the transparency of the river increased.

Chien Dan, Hindu temple of the Champa kingdom. They were made in 11-12 centuries.

I rode 140km and arrived at Hoian. This was a tourist city.

I rode through the mediocre way of the midland today.

On the roadside, the people made something.

And there was an amusement place of children.

Because my father goes for delivery, I tend the store while studying.

Good "nha nghi", dainty "com" and nice "caphe sua"

National highway 1D, open cut new road.

Across a small mountain pass to provincial capital of Binh Dinh, Qui Nhon.

Slip on a rail track on road, for the first and only time in this trip.

In the hotel, I was with Russian motorcyclists. They were the tourists who took an animation.

Dai Lanh fishing port at dawn. There was no breakwater here. Fishermen passed on a pail boat.

I cycled heading north on National highway No.1. It was another 1185km to Hanoi.

In a bicycle shop, I oiled a chain. However, it was too thick.

95.5 km / 711.6km

A color of the Ninh Hoa Station was a darkish yellow peculiar to Vietnam.

I pedaled a narrow way road in the small village. Village people enjoyed a cockfight by the roadside.

At the sandbar of Hon Gon, I struggled against a strong wind and a sand stone.

I arrived at the fishing village called Xom Con, and a chicken came out in the local restaurant where I sat to eat a fish.

 87.4 km / 616.1km
