Winter 17/18 from Yên Minh to Tân Quang

Had a good night at the Cao Nguyen Guesthouse in Yen Minh. Took some time till Mitsos was happy with his breakfast but after that we continued our drive towards the West of Vietnam. But today we only drove South.

Looks like it will be a nice day

You can see the poor farmer on the right has only a plastic housel. Middle class on the left has a wood house and the new rich have proper big traditional wood houses. Building this is quite expensive now since there is not a lot of big trees left.
