Today was the second day on this trip on the Northern Loop with blue sky. I was hoping for the days with only blue sky for a few years – finally, I got at last one day of blue in the mountains. In the evening I was even happier since I do not want to drive the small road up to the DT 128 in the rain with my Yamaha Exciter 135. And let’s not talk about the slick on the back tire. Best of all – most of today’s drive was still without power lines. And I can not say that too often. Even in 1989 when I was here the first time there were power lines everywhere. So it was a special day all together.

After a while I was back at the QL 12 and turned right to drive up North to meet with Mitsos in Sìn Hồ.
The Phúc Thọ Hotel
Had to wait hours for Mitsos to turn up. Since he does not track where he drives we will never know. Only one thing is sure – he drove a very different road to get here.
I drove 151 kilometers in 6 hours, 11 minutes with gas and food stops.
