Wednesday 02, January 2019 53 km – Total so far: 469,5 km
The night was short. People were still partying so it was very loud and I woke up many times. Finally at 5 o’clock my alarm rang and at 5:30 I was already on the road.
It still was really dark. No moon at all. I’m glad my bike has very good lights and there was no traffic. The morning air was cool and fresh. Only 14°C, but I was climbing up and sweating like hell anyway. When I am going downhill, I always need to put on my jacket.
It was quiet, the road was good with very little traffic. Just some huge Thai trucks from time to time.
Referring to the food situation it seemed to be a copy of yesterday. No shops to buy reasonable food only redbull and some Chinese biscuits.
I had no idea where my trip would take me today but I decided not to go as far as the next bigger spot. It was too far away. I stopped somewhere in a village in between.
In the end I had climbed almost up to 1000m.
In this – I would call it bigger village – with its houses lying right and left on the roadside, there’s nothing to do really. But the room I got today is much better then yesterday just inside it is f.. cold.
After I showered I went to eat and the menu again was a copy of yesterday: Noodle soup. I was so hungry, I ordered a second time.
The lady stared at me with eyes wide open, but she brought me the second pot of noodle soup. I guess for these people it seems like we Europeans eat like a swarm of hungry grasshoppers.
After I went to get a Laos simcard and look for some carbohydrates for tomorrow…..and in the evening I got a good dinner next to my guesthouse
