35 miles (Ban khoksivilai to ban keun) Average speed 10.5 mph Top speed 20 mph
A good day.
I got up late at 11 after another late night having dinner with Roger.
I showered and packed and left at 12 not having to check out as I didn’t have a key to hand in!
I soon found a good sandwich shop for cold coffee and pork sarnie.
I turned right on the road to Phontong which was mostly paved, but when sandy the puddles were large from last nights rain and I was glad I’d taken my washing in last night!
I found my way to the ferry and paid 2000 kip to cross the river with a few locals.
My first stop was a temple in the middle of nowhere on a sandy road at a beautiful temple which was being decorated by the monks.
I took some ice from them and continued on the sandy road for 6 miles, the scenery was amazing and the tranquility of being in the farmlands lovely with bird song and nature in abundance. I stumbled across a field that appeared to be growing cannabis but on closer inspection wasn’t but I am not sure exactly what it was. It didn’t have a distinct odour??
I eventually got to the road number 10 and asphalt, but it was quite busy so I had a drink and saw a beautiful girl filling up her pick-up with lots of beers and provisions but she didn’t invite me to the party.
The next section was busy for a while, but soon the traffic calmed and I could enjoy the ride.
