Boats, rain and trekking

My view of the back of the bus drivers head did finally end. I will admit that my view turned into a view of my eyelids during a short nap.

After arriving at LaVie Vu Linh Ecolodge we had a wonderful lunch followed by a drizzling trek through the area.

LaVie Vu Linh Ecolodge is a project in creation and bringing back sustainable living and agriculture. You can read about the project at the website.

The kids were able to enjoy a boat ride and a wonderful trek through the commune. Along the trek were eucalyptus trees, fragrant cinnamon trees, a visit with a sustainable farmer, and a small boat builder.

Now it is time for some rest. Cool breeze, but lovely place to rest. More tomorrow and happy wishes to all from LaVie Vu Linh.

My View

Today begins a short trip with 14 middle school students graded 6 and 7. We are traveling to LaVie Ecolodge, which is about two hours northwest of Hanoi, Vietnam.

The students began this trip yesterday with basic training in rock climbing. They learned to tie basic knots, fit their harness, and various aspects if climbing at VietClimb in Hanoi.

Now the fun part of the trip. LaVie Ecolodge while inly two hours from Hanoi takes about five hours by bus. There is not any major highway between the two locations. So, for the next five hours this is my view.

More as the trip continues. Happy day to all.
