An old capital and mussel rice… Hue

As we pushed our rented bicycles through the muddy rice field, almost loosing our flip flops on the way, the rain started to fall. We were probably lost and Ryan’s bike had a puncture…this trip was not going well. Once we found the main road again and washed our feet in a nearby puddle we walked to the nearest building to ask for some help. This roadside shop appeared to have a tyre outside and with some gestures and sound effects (the hissing of the flat tyre) the owner realised what the problem was. And in no time at all he’d fixed the two punctures and only charged us 60p for his services! All with minimal english from him and less Vietnamese from us…
