2 people with more than 30kg of luggage on a motorcycle, we have come across more than 1,000 km journey in 3 days, including the journey through the western element of Yen Bai.
Also in the March two years ago, I was with 3 friends performed the journey towards Apachai – where the milestone 0 – borders Vietnam, China, Laos … We move on from to Lai Chau, Dien Bien, O Quy Ho Pass up to Lao Cai and send motorcycles under a train back to Hanoi.
March of the same year we have the sun and the western wind dry blows from Laos to Apachai; pebbly path nearly 70 km from Muong Lay (Dien Bien) into to Phong Tho (Lai Chau) that seemed endless; joyful feeling when standing atop the westernmost of the country after a long and tiring journey; pay back the feeling when you first see the flowers, rice flower; with the cold of a morning cam in Sa Pa; as well as an unforgettable lunch rush dusty roadside with dry noodles and rice, left over from the morning. And above all sense of past has stepped back behind his footsteps.

March this year, I resumed the journey to the west but it looks backwards a little 2 years ago. From Hanoi, we sent the motorcycle according to Lao Cai train, and began traveling on the 2-wheeler to get to Sa Pa, O Quy Ho downhill to Lai Chau and then along Highway 12 to Phong Tho, Muong Lay on Dien Bien Phu.
This time, I did not look Apachai which continues from 279 Dien Bien way to Tuan Giao (adjacent districts between Dien Bien, Lai Chau and Son La). From Tuan Giao, off Route 6 to pass Pha Din old (one of the four elements of the Northwest Pass Khau Pha alongside, O Quy Ho and Ma Pi Leng), and then down to Son La, then turned onto North Yen , visit Ta Xua then passes to the local mail station, the Blind, Second Village, aneurysm Lake, Van Chan and along Highway 32 in Hanoi.

Also unlike two years ago, I’m not going to get rid of part of their youth behind, but like to welcome the future ahead.
It was in March, as well as Northwest in me with the flowers, rice flower, is the cold, the sun, the wind, the dry, the rigors of the western region, as well as the feeling of excitement and stimulation when arriving in a place where I have not been to, see things that I had not seen before, but in March this year, I do not feel lonely when standing atop towering mountains, nor is vague feeling of heavy footsteps around Hoan Kiem lake shore.
I know, there are people who will always share the happiness I feel when stepping through a high slope or seeing an interesting scene, holding my hand along the banks of Hoan Kiem Lake, accepted me overcome all journeys whether hardships, comforting encouragement when I tired though I well knew that he was worn out as I was. If he is not, I think it is difficult to accept and pursue my crazy journey like that.
Only 2 people with more than 30kg of luggage on a motorcycle, we have come across more than 1,000 km journey in 3 days, including the journey through the west Yen Bai mail address from Ta Xua to Station Tau, The Blind, Second Village, Lake aneurysm. Here before you are considered hotspots po mu wood smuggling, trafficking and poppy cultivation. Now, the situation is much better now because the timber is heard no more to exploit.
And even though the distance is only about 30 km from the junction Hang NOTE – Tram Tau on the Public (Tram Tau), when I asked a lot of the locals along the way, most of whom are not clear Tram Tau where, how far, I think that does not seem to have many people to the area. Local people speak and understand English nor coherently, such Economics places I have ever come across.
March, government russet hills. Also tinged color plants to sicken, so that, through the color is dull, lifeless makes me think like this area has undergone a major fire. Only the utopian steep, rocky trails, the mountains, the riders of such challenges, and the sound of modern wind thousand.
Thank you again came to a March. March is always interesting and colorful.
