Below you have access to two maps, one showing the route and the waypoints, where there is a change of train and the other which will show geotagged photos along the route. There may be a lag to the uploading of photos but my current position will be available via Google Latitude on the left of the page.

How to use the map below

Firstly expand the map until all icons are separated. Then click on individual icons. Train icons provide train information and green icons the stopover details.

Off to catch my last train

Arrived Hanoi yesterday and have explored the old quarter (like marrakesh
souks on speed), walked around Hoan Kiem Lake, and visited the 1000 yr old
Temple of Literature(pic of incense in the temple). Last night I met David and Kathy, my next door neighbours from Stamford who are in Hanoi for a year with VSO. Local knowledge is everything and so
I enjoyed vietnamese restaurant and rooftop bar with them.
On the way back from the temple yesterday I took a ride on back of scooter
and videoed the ordeal. It will get posted on the blog later.
At midday I board my last train for Saigon....the end of the road and I
arrive 8pm tomorrow night.
