CCS Vietnam 2017
25th Sep 2017
Day 6

Today in Vietnam we had the longest trip on the road yet. Starting our epic Journey of 130kms from Hoi An to Hue, we stopped in the gorgeous city of Da Nang at a local marble sculpture stop. After the brief break we were back on the road and on our way to Hai Van Pass, which was a mountain track with brilliant views of the island that had once been a leper colony. On the peak was an old French Guard post with excellent views of the surrounding landscape, and as Davo described it “The Most dangerous crossing in all of Vietnam” which consisted of a two lane road and one scooter every twenty minutes. After our short respite from the bus we were back on the road for another three hours. We were all fairly drowsy, but our Faithful guide Luat managed to lighten our spirits with a special version of pass the parcel, with a crab and singing. This game included such talents as Chelsea Hansford singing the National Anthem, Charlie Combens Brilliant rendition of Copperhead Road, a gut wrenching performance from Alice Gordon of Twinkle Twinkle Litle Star, Davo’s incredible cover of Turn Around, and Angus Maxfields Masterful version of Hooked on a Feeling. After a short break of an hour and a half we reached our hotel, and Dowsey managed to make us late for our visit with the Local Uni students, who proudly sung us their National Anthem, Luat got into it. After our visit Dowsey revealed his identity of Bruce Springsteen as he sung us Eagle Rock. As our bus sound system of a UE Boom Began to play You Sexy Thing, as if entranced Davo rose from her chair and began to whip out her sick dance moves, explaining how the song was secretly about her. After another short rest break in the hotel, we went for dinner at a traditional Vietnamese resturant, experiencing the local culture through the delicious meal, polite staff, and excellent live performace of traditional Vietnamese music.

For the days ahead we hope Bruce Dowse performs more of the classics.

Lillie and Gus.
