Sapa Day 62-63


all seasons in one day 33 °C

Well arrived in Sapa yesterday afternoon and spent what was left of the day wandering around and getting my bearings,luckily Sapa is quite small so it did'nt long

The beauty of Sapa and the local area is the scenery,located in a very mountainous area of Vietnam with mountains towering over terraces of rice and vegetables, Sapa it self is around 1500m above sea level with peaks near by rising to over 3500m

Today was another excursion on an underpowered scooter which must of been flogged consistently due to its life as a hire bike,but any way me and the bucket of bolts had a leisurely ride over Tran Tom Pass the highest road in Vietnam at 1900m this mountain is all so a divide for the weather,Sapa side cold and wet other side dryer and much hotter,stopping constantly to look at the water falls and vistas

Tomorrow of trekking for 2 days and 1 night,hope there are no hills involved,but don't like my chances ?
