A cloudy cooler morning as I set off, typical as I bought a thermometer yesterday to see how hot it is out here in the afternoons and its sods law that its not so hot today

A track goes down to the Mae Lamao but I dont think theres much chance of crossing it apart from on main roads

I sit in a farmhands shelter to eat my lunch and its only a shivering 34 C in here

leaving it on the bike seat facing the sun gets it up to 42 C though

Some tracks are dead ends but others loop around

One of them links up with this track which I found last year that links the 105 up with the 3047 to the east

The wet road tells me its time to get a bucket of water again

A couple of buckets go over me and that was cold water too

On the ride back I saw a few more water throwers in places including one along the 105 going towards Mae Sot, I got wet from a water pistol going home but that was it

Beef curry and brown rice at Sara’s for 135 Baht
