The water is cold and a fairly fast current

I guess crossing over into Burma would be easy with a 4WD

My next track is a steep rocky one to start with

Its a better surface higher up but the track that the ESRI showed as going to the Moei river turned into a single walking track

A different turning brings me down to this better lower altitude track

The problem was the Moei river was before the good track, I could see bikes over in Burma riding a lot faster along it than I could on the rough bumpy track that I was on

I saw a couple of places where crossings were made

Jaffna chicken curry tonight at Sara’s Takeaway, this is a north Sri Lankan dish that Robinson asked me if I would like to try.
