It's an awesome ride and I have had some wonderful times and met many very kind and generous people but I want my readers to know it's not like riding around North America.
i read all these ride reports, your's is great!.... this is the first time i've actually seen someone say that the third world is not 'mr. roger's neighborhood', and that you better be careful.... somebody mentioned 'packin' in colebatch's thread, and we all got kicked off pronto.... not to get dark, but there's alotta clueless people, and the sharks and carnivores always look for an easy meal, you dig?.... but then again, i guess that's just darwin, and the lions gotta eat something, so.... i'd just rather it not be me.....
