Much cooler now in September, made the 42km bike ride to Huay Tung Tao (lake) very pleasant. Only Nescafe at the coffee shop, no cappuccino or latte....made up for by the great views.
Went on a lovely 46km bike ride along the river in 34 degrees of heat....very pretty countryside, lots of birds but the best thing we saw (spotted by Terry) were a pair of blue crested lizards, the bigger one was about 20cm (the one on the bark of the tree) the other one, on the floor, was about 15cm in length. Out and about in real rural Thaiand today, no coffee house today.
36km bike ride to south of city, very hot, 36degrees but found a lovely coffee shop by the river.
We said that we would set out 'early' for this trip to avoid the worst of the heat. So at 10.30 am (not quite the crack of dawn) we set off on our bikes. The gps certainly helped in the rural area with navigation through the villages and paddy fields. We rode with the mountains as a backdrop, very beautiful scenery.
