i hired a guy to take me around to the royal tombs on the back of his motorcycle. he didn't speak any english but i coulld still tell he was a nice guy. after the tomb of tu duc, he tried to tell me something about the bike. he eventually got through to me via pantomimed that his tire had sprung a leak. he brought me to the front porch of a random house in the countryside outside hue, talked to the woman who was home with her children, and then left me there.
the woman tried to offer me something to drink, i took some water, but mostly she stayed away from me. her children, however, were more curious and came over to play with me. they were cute kids. i was just wondering if my ride was ever going to show up to pick me up again. (he did)
