Ruth: This morning we said goodbye to Laos and cycled across the Friendship Bridge into Thailand. The transition from right side driving to left happened just as we headed onto the bridge and now I am so mixed up that before every turn I shoulder check in every direction.
We caught a train at Nong Khai heading south to Nakhon Ratchasima. Our third class train is a more bombed out version than most Thai trains, but we were able to easily load the bikes into the car we are sitting in. Unfortunately, we were directed to the car that is reserved for Monks and the elderly. Let’s just say, our bikes and ourselves don’t quite fit in.
One of the food vendors just came by offering a tasty snack of larvae, too bad I am plum full on baguette sandwiches and brownies.
