Pleiku to KonTum

sunny 26 °C

a leisurely start to the day with a late breakfast and time spent saying goodbye to friends. Always never sure if this is the last time. Wonerful accepting hospitality.

Goodbye from Pleiku

Four of us bludged a lift of one of the friends of our guests. A nice change from the usual bus experience
A very pleasant drive. The road in this section of the country is now excellent. Took 8 years to construct. In some sections there are even signs banning the use of vehicle horns....and it seems to work. Should be applied to the whole country.
Not sure what was going on in Tra Huynh which is about half way to KonTum, but on every corner and intersection there were stationed and army and a police person. Only saw one vehicle pulled over. Not sure what was on.
A few years ago we witnessed the riot squad, army, police and anyone with a siren parade around KonTum in their vehicles as a show of strength. They also had big signs on the side saying we are against criminals. A very strange at times.
Went and visited a local orphanage to make contact with some past friends and then onto a very long and boring church service in another dialect.
Called in at a local noodle street place on the walk home , to have a simple but health meal.
Home to bed for early start tomorrow.
