(After uploading I had to realize that the quality got really bad through the conversion, which is a big disadvantage especially at the first part..)
I have a slightly improved version here: youtube.com/watch?v=Wdr9ak9zQvA
From my first two days of my bike tour in Vietnam, mainly the second day.
1st day: Hai Phong ➥ Thái Bình (until about 1:40 min.; you actually don't get to see much from Vietnam in that part though)
2nd day: Thái Bình ➥ Thanh Hóa (from 1:40 min. on)
Actually at first I had not the slightest idea how and if at all I should use all this shaky footage in the mid-part, but then came the music and I think it just worked. So that actually I ended up using most of it, also to let the beauty of the track (as I find) evolve.
I can't let the wonderful people unmentioned which I've met especially on that second day between these two cities on the coutryside. They were the kindest people I've met in Vietnam. Often you get to meet people that also are kind, but then comes the point when they ask "What's in for me?!", or they immediately set the price. It was very different here.
In the morning I stopped somewhere to fix my bagage, when a guy came outside the house and helped me a bit and then offered me a tea. Continuing and short afterwards I noticed the bad state of the spokes from the bike. Very soon I found a mechanic. Well, probably it was his second time seeing a gear-shift (which he had to disassemble in order to exchange the spokes). It took more than two hours. Meanwhile I had lunch at a small restaurant [in the video]. Lovely people! In the end they didn't even let me pay for my lunch. I had dropped a bowl and then at least wanted to pay them for that, but they still refused. Back to the mechanic, it was done. A test ride. Jubilation from one of the boys that all the time were apparent, seeing me "fly" over. The initially a bit reserved mechanic finally was cheerful too. A heartfelt goodbye and big smiles. In the afternoon I (strangely) had the same problem with the bike again and then got help from a guy at a Café, providing two grippers. He also gave me some tea to fill up my bottle... also for free. And finally some guys with a truck offered to give me a ride until Thanh Hóa [in the video]. They didn't want money either.
