Ferryboats and Moonshine

Our second last cycling day saw us ride 80kms in the Mekong Delta region.  Unique to any other cycling holiday I have taken–though I’ve only taken one other, was the opportunity to board two ferries to cross the river tributaries.

We cycled through small villages, and diced with traffic.  For lunch, we went to the house of my previous guide, Lam, and his mother and aunt cooked us a lovely lunch.

The itinerary called for 60kms, but we managed to do 80.  There was some talk of going for 100, but I was quite content with the 80.

We took a ferry to spend the night at a homestay on an island.  It was calm and peaceful.  We were invited to learn how to make spring rolls, and then served an incredible dinner with some local moonshine.

Our guide sung us a Karen love song
