On we pressed the road being fairly smooth dust, it would be hard work if it rained.
The solo riders made easier work of the hills
there were views around every corner as we got to almost 1600 mtrs
A fuel stop
and more village life
Did I mention the dust
The last 25k's of the dirt became fairly rutted, apparently Trish took a dive as there's no pic it didn't happen.
We hit the tar at Sam Soun and enjoyed the twisties and scenery to Vieng Thong with a roadside lunch consisting of Bagettes and Banana
We arrived at our guesthouse which overlooked the market
After a shower it was out to find food and beer, we wanderd down near the river and found a place but when we asked for a beer they said no despite me being able to see a lot of it in the fridge, so we moved on ( i was later told it may have been a private function and locals can become protective of their beer during holidays).
Any we went back the way we came and had a beer here
thats the owner in the background and his son in the yellow shirt, he owned the computer shop/ guesthouse next door, we had a couple and a chat nice people
dinner was good
And a video of the days riding
