Pong to Song

This was a hot and hilly day. We did 95 km to Song. We had lunch there and then took a taxi tuk tuk to Phrae.

The road was great with little traffic but lots and lots of aggressive dogs. We have been chased three times in three days. We didn’t encounter aggressive dogs in Vietnam (they eat most of them), Cambodia (too hot for them to bother running) or Laos (too sickly and scrawny to run).

In Thailand they have pet food stores, so the dogs have energy. Also, 10% of Thai dogs are rabid.

We saw lots of temples along the way.

We also passed some cotton fields.

We were cycling in a national forest when we came across a deafening sound of insects in the trees. This went on for over 15 km’s.

Bye for now
Janis and David
