Room move, Vietmanese “Brew Dog”, 

Today is the day that the rest of the group arrive that I will be cycling the HCM trail with.  I had to move rooms as I am sharing rooms this trip my room mate is a Scouse physio currently residing in Plymouth called Dominic.  After we had got unpacked and settled we went out for some sight seeing and found a pub called The Pasteur Brewing Co which brews its own ales.I had a nice refreshing IPA flavoured with fruit and Jasmine 3% an excellent brew!

After our little repast we went to the  Reunification Palace and spent about 2 hours wandering around the rooms and watching a film of the palace and its role in Siagons past.

   
  

At 6::30 we were to meet in the lobby of the hotel so  with an hour to spare I nipped up to the gym and did resistance work and stretches.

Everyone duly convened  for introductions and an updated itinerary.  A mixed crew-2  couples from Australia, 1 couple from Carslisle with a little cycling experience, a couple from London that had cycled quite a bit in hot climates, a  man from Cambridge a woman from Coventry with limited experience and Domonic and I.  We were then taken out for food in a family run restaurant  near the hotel then back to bed for our 6am rise.
