In the morning shade of Cat's Tooth mountain the forest was steaming with humidity. The path to the Hindi temples of Champ dynasty, although paved, was slippery and sometimes dangerous. Fortunately, after several minutes we arrived at the place called Mỹ Sơn.

A few days we had in Poland were spent on getting last things sorted. Among others it was international driving licence, last shot of rabies vaccine and anti-malarian tabs. Unfortunately, ~34h before our flight we cought some kind of stomach flu and any last minute preparations had to be reprioritized. Luckily, the symptoms were gone soon enough to enjoy our flight to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and we have finally started our journey.
