Biking in Laos and Vietnam by Joan Oppel
Joan Oppel wrote this piece which appears in the March, 2010 issue of The Pedal Patter, the monthly newsletter of the Potomac Pedaler Touring Club. Joan was on Tour d’ Indochine a year ago.
The article had no pics so I’m taking the liberty to add a few from the trip.
Visiting the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Hanoi
The guy who owned this water buffalo could not believe that it would let Joan hop on its back (apparently they can smell people and don't like it). I couldn't believe that Joan even tried it.

A big thanks to Joan for sharing the experience!
