Blog 115 Sa Kaeo to Bang Ing Suan Ponds (near Bangkok)

19th January

Early start, birds chirping, just getting light, cool. Farmers not yet up. Dogs still asleep, stalls being awakened. Rough cloths drawn back. Back road riding, sugar can, black at the bottom, corridors of planting extend to the horizon. It’s quiet. My schedule is relaxed, I have time to smile. Then onto the main highway, eventually stop for a shake but I'm back in Thailand.


Photographs and Artwork of the Kind and Queen of Thailand are Everywhere


But I only saw two signs like this ....

A Elephant Joke

An elephant joke is a joke cycle, almost always an absurd riddle or conundrum and often a sequence that involves an elephant. Elephant jokes were a fad in the 1960s, with many people constructing large numbers of them according to a set formula. Sometimes they involve parodies or puns.

This is My Day


Map of the Day

One of the longer days on the whole trip - 110 miles (176kms). Curious to see what the limit of rider and bike actually is and for how long. Thoughts.
