In march 2014 I travelled through the Central Highlands in Vietnam to continue my work about the ethinc minorities. I was accompanied by my good friend Dr Gosh who speaks a bit of vietnamese. We had a nice ride along Ho Chi Minh road which goes almost from North to South near borders of Laos and Cambodia. Going through breathtaking landscapes, we found ourselves in remote and isolated places where very few tourists were to be seen. A majour ride for anybody who's seeking for wilderness and full-immersion in the counrty.
Our best budies for the next two weeks... never let us down!
