Local floods.

13 August Mukdahan - Sakhon Nakhon - 122 km.
I felt remarkably good and decided to head for Savannakhet on the Lao side of the Mekong River. Once at immigration, I was told that I could not cross the Friendship bridge by bicycle (not a very friendly bridge after all). I thought “Forget that, I will continue on the Thailand side” and that was exactly what I did. It turned out to be an excellent day with vastly varied roads and scenery. I turned off the main road and landed myself on a dirt road amongst the rubber plantations. Awesome stuff! The villagers were highly surprised to see me and, in true Thai style, invited me to share their food. I pushed onto Sakhon Nakhon, as I wanted to get to Vientiane, in Lao, for a new visa before Tania arrived. She; however, contacted me to say that she could not make it anymore. I was really sorry to hear that, as I know she was looking forward to it. Things; however, don’t always work out as planned. I was absolutely starving and was more than happy to find the night market right behind the hotel where I stayed. Bargain!! I was so hungry that I bought two meals! In the end, I could hardly finish one, let alone two!!!
A lot of water

The water is beautiful but the clouds do it for me. Another setback and another diversion.

I agree with Tony here, pity.

Not a very friendly Friendship Bridge.

You must be disappointed that Tania won't be joining you.
