Leg 3 & 4 – South East Asia Riding slightly ‘different’ bikes around Mandalay This is a pagoda Standard meal – Chicken fried rice This was pretty much what Burma looked like for 3 days 8 lanes on each side with very little traffic 16 lanes of nothing I was told to look out for a famous statue in this town.. I think I may have taken a photo of the wrong one.. I wasn’t the only one sheltering from the heat.. A room on a lake I think this is all water in the wet season This happened just in front of me… bit of a close call really There are pagodas everywhere in Burma and I deliberately tried to avoid taking pictures of too many. Consequently, I probably didn’t take enough.. but regardless, this is what they look like Hpa-An clocktower That red soil made a right mess of my bike when it rained First proper climb in over two weeks… …and it put me in a good mood What happens at the border of two countries that drive on different sides of the road… My first ride in a tuk-tuk Another pagoda After 212 kilometres.. this was quite nice Happy Birthday to my sister. For anyone wondering why I stopped between Leg 3 &4 – that is the reason A very laid-back elephant That is a frog… One of the many palm oil plantations Climbing through a forest at sunrise isn’t a bad way to spend a morning After a very long climb. The camera doesn’t really do the view justice Unfortunately I didn’t see any wild elephants South China Sea (I think it is anyway – although it’s quite a way from China) The extent of my bird-watching. These b*st*rds were making a racket outside my window all evening Massive thanks to Jim and Mel at T3 Bicycle Gears in Singapore. Made my bike feel like new again Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
