Friday January 18, 2013, 3 km (2 miles) – Total so far: 423 km (263 miles)

Today is a sort of rest day, in that there’s no cycling involved, but ‘rest’ is a misnomer. No cycling but when the body does nothing, it starts to shut down and get all ache-y here and there. Apart from doing nothing, we had the bikes thoroughly washed and dried, (2000 dong or 50 cents) followed by lunch, (on a boat) followed by a ‘cruise’ followed by a long afternoon tea, followed by dinner. (on another boat)

Yes it was quite a taxing day off the bike. My leg muscles were actually confused, as the body called for a striding motion instead of a relaxed circular paddling one, much like ducks do.

As our bikes were hemmed up between a glass wall and the hotel lobby’s furniture, it was too much of a hassle to retrieve them, and so goes part of a day wasted not exploring Chau Doc on a bike, which I feel like doing right now ! I am losing my touch with this groupie bike touring thing …
