THAILAND | Thursday, 11 December 2014 | Views [256] | Comments [4]

  left lop bure a couple long days, am riding good rural road.  this first day  very little commerce along road.   some small 'towns' across canal.   is flat mostly treeles and HOt.   not alot of traffic pleasant in general but little hard to find food just along road way.    and after 35 milees  pretty worn.   alot of rice fieids.    

arrive town   as usual some great help in getting me to a lodging.   are many 'motel' types in some places others not much.   they are very clean safe   good for just shower sleep.   did find way to night market.  always a pleasure find.   papya, mango not in season here so bit spendy but worth it :)  had little  mix of vegggies.   peas carrot slivers cauliflower lovely cloud mushrooms  and a bit spicy fish dish.   i have this great alarge cup i bought so have them put in there.   other wise they send people away with multiple plastic bags.    

wander and back to sleep.  out early cool again this great raod. this day cane fields rule.    some hills rise up out of the flat that i fortunatly curve aournd.   counting down the k's.  get pretty early says 8 more then turn corner at junction and suddenly it s14  :(   lots of commerece here.  adding those 'motel' sign so know i will find place.  get into town as day mrket closing up.  able speak to your womyn in english tell me on road i going where look for place.  more k's.     finally do find it   is little old  right on little slough, read mosquitos eh ;/    but whole own little cabina  quiet.  

routine seems be shower collapse for resting with legs up awhile.   venture out.  just on road here so glad at intersection is a few folks selling food stuffs.  great spicy green squash and a  maybe tofu cramble with  cabbage spicy too.   cup home eat.    out light enough to see.  high moon getting small. sits like a cup not balanced on its side.             following along road more contry and today is rice again.    some brilliant green with white egrets stalking frogs   or stubble with grazers.     huges depots,  big patios for drying, then scooped into big trucks and away.

moring goes quickly heats up.  an intersection say town i want this way but not number on map?  go to name.  but of course when arrive big interesection i turn wrong way as though i was turning from origingal road.  little time sorting out.   again such helpful people.    long weary  glad later in day turn north so shade is on my side of road :)    again seeing sign,   however when arrive intersection,  hmmm where they dais they were  i can't read.  eventuall see sign and again into little clean room.   funny often they dont give key,  they open, close.  

yesterday and today no control for AC.  i flip braker switch.   got way too cold.   last night lots of rustling around in roof and walks.   bambooo lathe today cement.  but sadly can here tvs talking hmmm maybe etc.     finally got self out.  amazes me i walk upon this cyber.  what really wanting to find it to let folks know i still planet side.   love hearing your comments as well of course :)  much love hope all is well there. where ever your there is.       mayhap manana or soon as i can.   on to the next adventure.



So fun to get the update as always, my friend. It is raining like crazy outside but not too cold. Up to the mountains with the family this weekend. Doesn't look like there will be any snow. Oh well. At least good company. Be well! d

Lani, so good to read of your travels, adventures, food, etc. good to know you are making your way.

John here yesterday and today. Much more powerful. I am blown away and humbled.

Kitchen remodel is of course, disorienting but we are making our way.

Sending you loads of love and protection on this next amazing journey.

A wonderful journal entry! Paints the picture, and now we have the image of your bike to look at, thank you. All's well and rainy here...pineapple express without the pineapple, darn it. Sewing, knitting, holiday travel prep. Miss you, mi amiga!
