This week's "return to Big Mountain" began with a 'multinational' walk along Le Ngoc Han to the familiar Hem 89, where we turned left and climbed the steps through the residential area to Vi Ba (the mostly sealed road that locals use for their daily exercise on Big Mountain).
After the usual 'chalk talk' ('run briefing', for the uninitiated!), we continued to the end of Vi Ba, then changed terrain onto a rough track towards the popular theme park on top of the mountain. And that's when the fun began!
We left the track and joined the trail under the cable car system as far as the crossroads at the top, where we made a right turn onto the steep rock-strewn trail that descends all the way down the mountainside back to Vi Ba.
Then it was down the steps through the houses and along Le Ngoc Han in reverse direction to the "Twin goldfish" in the Front Beach park on Le Loi.
After many beers, chips and snacks of Russian bread, pork and pickles (supplied once again by Mountain Goat and her faithful hound Hashputin), the Circle was called.
Hares Falcon, Samson and KFC were awarded 8/10 for the trail by Punjabi Express. VTH3 Hash Virgins Mark (Sperm Polluter) and Annie were welcomed from Pattaya, and Punjabi Express and Stubble were welcomed back after work-related absences - a feature of the oil & gas industry, of which Vung Tau is Vietnam's epicentre.
This week's sinners included Faulty Brakes and Punjabi Express for some spectacular 'Hash crashes', intrepid Hare Samson for new shoes, and several others for various misdemeanours.
The highlight of an extremely enjoyable day was Sperm Polluter and Annie presenting beautiful red sarongs from Pattaya Hash to all the ladies!
