What we saw walking 137,890 steps

14 days.  137,890 steps walked.  30 miles biked.  We strolled down pedestrian shopping streets, tentatively walked down alleys, biked over bridges.  We came upon different views of Hoi An, and we often pulled out our cameras to catch a scene worth remembering.

Feeding and sharing time.
