Yesterday’s trek was a little different from the day before. We were lucky (well most) that we could hire gumboots/ wellingtons. I got the smallest size that they possibly had (saying something for Vietnam) and two of the boys had to trek in their running shoes cause they didn’t have big enough ones. For the whole trek, and mostly down hill we were squelching in the mud. With only two people slipping over and covering there bums in mud, we didn’t do too badly. The uphill segments were definitely appreciated. We were also swarmed with local ladies, as we were headed for the villages, and at times I was thankful to have a helping hand for the slippery parts!
