    Excursion to My Son, "Sacred Valley" of the Champa indianized kingdom with more than 70 towers sanctuaries from the 7th to the 13th century. Enclosed in a natural amphitheater of hills, symbolizing the female nature, this site is the pedestal of Shiva, the privileged place of contact between the world of men and the cosmic world, a fabulous sacerdotal complex still full of mystery, despite the pangs of time and wars. The temples and the "kalan" combine the grace of the decorations with the slenderness of the vertical lines. It will evoke all the spirituality that dominated this kingdom for more than five centuries and we will try to penetrate the arcane.

    PLEIKU- BUON ME THUOT
    Departure for Buon Me Thuot, the course is a nice ride, soft to look, which often carries far above the muddy reliefs. Leaving the city, the road engages on a plateau of red earth and crosses for about twenty kilometers of large plantations of rubber trees and coffee while many gardens of Kinh houses are planted with pepper trees.

    Arrive at Buon Me Thuot - a small, bustling provincial town that is well known for producing coffee and pepper. The coffee is coarse grain arabica. Of the four species of foxes that live in the area, one particularly likes coffee. The guardians of the plantations, instead of hunting these animals encourage them to come by depositing seeds at the foot of the shrubs. This is the only way to recover the "fox coffee", especially prized and sold more expensive on the market.
