Well the weather hasn't been kind for sight seeing for the last few days it either been quite stormy or like today just persist drizzle with thunderstorms thrown in for good measure,so in the last 4 days I have got out twice and both times got soaked
Did get up into the mountains a few times on the 250 dirt bike and while going up was okay coming back down was a bit hairy at times,the roads were washed out clay tracks and quite steep,so going down in 1st at an idle you actually basically just slid down using brakes was of no value,you just put you legs down as out riggers and hoped for the best,thankfully I didn't come off but it was luck and not good management I think !! The 250 must of done so hard yards in time as a hire bike,back too 1st or 2nd going up the hills and some very concerning piston or crank slap noises,it definitely has lost of of original horse power,I the bit more I gave probably won't help it
Visited the night markets a few times for a cheap feed and look around the tourist stalls,so far no food poisoning,but you do wonder how long the prawns and fish have been sitting with no ice or refrigeration
The hire bike has been taken back this arvo,so tomorrow it time to get my paper work and visa ready for Vietnam,off to Hanoi on Wednesday to catch up with an old work colleague which should fun,plan is to spend a week 2 with him then do Halong Bay then Sapa and then northern areas thencross back into Cambodia
