The road is long, my friends, very long. When you think you have seen it all, you realize you have not seen any of it. I have started an ESL job here in Vietnam, so it looks like I will be in Hoi An for at least three months. I had to take this job as the funds I thought I would have, are not looking like they will be coming in. That is very disappointing and makes me sort of not like people. (* I sold my company of 10 years to people who said they would pay, but as the sparrow fly, they are not at the moment – this is a story for another day, however).

The ESL job.

Every day a driver named Mr.Tue comes to get me. I sit on the back of a Honda Wave 110. Together we drive across Hoi An, over some old bridges, past rice fields and more. The other day I took my camera with me on this ride. The goal was to capture some of the sights on the way.

Here are some photos from the adventure from Hoi An to my ELS job. I think these turned out good and will do another batch again.

This is an EPIC old bike I stumbled across in the woods one day. So many stories must be held under that chipped paint. So Many

We would set out for the school at sunset, and drive past endless side roads like this.

Over waterways with people on bikes stretching in the setting sun.

Others would ride past as well on their bikes and not even take notice.

Past large beasts of burden walking in from the fields after a hard day’s work.

Past people working in their shops, fixing bikes, or just living, doing what they do.
