An Indian Wedding & Bike ride through Laos travel blog

Group shot

Mountain view on the road

Well I thought I was cruising along quite well on the belly front, but Mariam started vomiting early in the morning, and a couple of hours later, after feeling sick all day, so did I. We missed the day bike trip that went to the waterfall near Luang Prabang and spent the day lying in bed and running to the bathroom. FUN.

After sleeping on and off for nearly 24hours, we some how managed to get on our bikes the next day with the group and make our way to Kasi. I made a big effort that day in completing as many miles as possible and only boarded the bus 2 x (2 steep bits!!). Of the 66.2kms, I rode about 50kms. There was a ripper downhill section for 15kms, ~700mts that I really enjoyed.

Unfortunately my decisions to hop on and off the bus have not won me any friends, but I'm sure I'll be coming home with a much healthier back than I did from I think that my bus antics will continue.

Kasi is a truck stop town. There is nothing to see or do there. We took cold showers, ate cold fried chicken (disappointing since we watched it being cooked and could have happily eaten it hot earlier), and headed to bed at 8pm. I took a sleeping pill and had a good sleep, but Mariam was convinced there were bugs in her bed.....and was scatching and sleepless most of the night. The joys of being on the road!
