Bảo Lạc bridge - vietnam

Back to civilization! (Bảo Lạc, Vietnam)

When I say "civilization", I mean that there is a bridge that can be crossed by a car.­ Since the morning (in Mèo Vac), the best bridges I saw could only be crossed by a motorbike, and sometimes rivers had to be forded or crossed with bamboo rafts, and roads were not paved and barely passable with a motorbike.­
