Day 10: Phu Wiang to Non Bualamphu (75km) Distance travelled so far 551km"Banana fritters/dodgy tummy"
We get up and get the bikes ready as per normal and hit the streets.....We have started getting into a routine of heading to 7/11's (convenience stores) where we know we can obtain bread and hot water for the packaged porridge/oats cereal which we purchased in bulk a while back.....They taste pretty good and with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate give us good energy for about 20 km or so....(after which we normally have another light snack). Todays cycle is fine. Cycled around a closed Dinosaur Park after about 5km in. During one of our breaks....We came across this very strange gentleman in a 4*4...... To cut a long story short........He was not very sublte in his admiration of Michaels' new haircut....and was caught on numerous occasions sneaking a peak at our cycling shorts....(the front side).....Needless to say.....we decided to cut the increasingly weird conversation and awkward silences by getting back on our bikes... The rest of the journey was plain sailing.....apart from the "banana incident"......Lets just say that when you eat banana fritters on a near empty stomach....you should have a squatter fairly near by and preferably one with bog roll!!!!! End of Day 10.....Still very hot but we are getting more resiliant in that we can easily cycle 60km per day.... Rock n' Roll!!!!
During our short morning breaks we generally like to take cover from the sun in a Thai bus shelter. They're everywhere.
