While Sue-On went for
a pedicure and massage, followed by a long class in Vietnamese cooking,
Bill went exploring. He started out on what was to be a 2-3 hour hike around
the city outskirts and winding along country trails past old temples &
cemeteries and through rice paddies. Quite a workout in 35 degree temps.
. . and without a water bottle. Many bikers stopped to offer rides along
the way, but the stubborn Canuck was actually enjoying the adventure and
carried on by foot.
He had hoped to reach the river
but the road he was following angled off so he angled back to town. He
eventually re-entered the city area looking for familiar landmarks. Sometimes
even men will feel compelled to ask for directions, so he showed the hotel
business card to a young shopkeeper. The boy spoke no English but sketched
a map which helped to turn the weary walker in the right direction.
By the time Sue-On returned to
the hotel room her hubby was lounging in the air conditioned room with
a cold beer -- his sweat-soaked clothes thrown in a heap.
