Tha Khaek

Monday 14th January, Tha Khaek.
Today’s ride, according to the plan drawn up before I left home, was for a 130km ride. It seemed doable in my study 18 months ago. After the last couple of weeks Experience I decided to take a Tuk Tuk for the first few kilometres.
Then a really good ride of 95km.
It’s always really interesting the first few days in a new country, new scenery, culture, money, history, politics…. and finding out how things work here.
Roads are very poor.

Took out a million this morning.
Unfortunately this was in Laotian Kip where the exchange rate is 11,000 to £1.
