Reset directions Print directions Pictures say it all. Thailand our 25th country achieved! We went to the old ferry border crossing for this picture. This access is only allowed for Thais and Lao now. We had to ride a bus across the Friendship Bridge for our crossing yesterday evening. We toured the town of Chiang Khong, Thailand this morning. We wobble so much without a load on our bikes. On the right is the Mekong River and Laos. Astroturf shark! What a neat sign in Chiang Khong. Our first Thai temple. Electrical wiring is interesting in some countries. Since I am an electrical engineer I find this very interesting. I find these temples beautiful. I wonder how old these are. What an ornate gate – to say it mildly. A few km’s from our guest home is a bar and bike museum. Alan Bate cycled around the world in 106 days. Not something we would do but an interesting way to travel the world nonetheless. He used to race internationally and has quite a museum of bicycles along with posters, gear, and such. In the Guinness Book of Records. This is the bike he rode around the world with. We would like to have this graphic decal of our countries made for our bikes. The bar. Andrea and Bruce from Portland Oregon riding their bikes around SE Asia. What a great time we have had with them. Bruce and I are both 61 too! We found Mexican! Bruce knows the owner, who he calls a Thai hippie, from 16 years ago as Bruce has been coming here for 40 years. Full moon. Cuttlefish crackers?
