Backtracking did not take that long and we found ourselves back on the 279. This is where Danny had to head back to Hanoi. We’d see each other on Sunday. I went West on 279 to DT 183, where I turned South, and had a pleasant 4 hour run, winding through small towns on a clear, dry, hard-topped road. The Xoi Farmstay was run by a delightfully kind and friendly family. A nice, simple room with a short walk across the courtyard to the shower was perfect.
