We set out from our less than perfect hotel relatively late for a cycling trip. It was probably 8:30, which felt like sleeping in.
Before departing from the area, we had the chance to look around a local market and a local train station. I must commend the Exodus Tours people because we definitely don’t get stuck in tourist trap areas.
We had a great day of cycling. I won’t kid you and say it was easy, because more than 80km in the heat can never be called easy. We had some great snacks at our rest stops though.
There were some interesting sights along the way. We stopped at a reservoire for a quick dip–what the Brits on the trip called a “paddle” and a delicious picnic lunch. I am sorry that I was unable to get a picture of the waterbuffaloes swimming in the stream. One of the other cyclists took a picture so I will update it later.
We had to say goodbye to our mechanic/sweeper, scout, and drivers. I will leave you with their picture.
Tomorrow, we head to Cambodia.
