Countryside around Dien Bien Phu

Unfortunately, despite the rewards of the scenery and the friendly and inviting villages, without a map (which we couldn't find in town) or any guidance from the hotels or anyone else we asked, it's difficult to get the most out of this trip.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

Still worth it though if you're happy just to drive around without really knowing where you are or what you're seeing.
