Lazy day on Don Daeng.

La Folie Lodge offers free bicycle hire to its guests, and we took advantage of this by pedalling off to take a peak at the island in the morning, before the heat of the day became too unbearable. Wise move, as the temperature hit 44 C in the afternoon!

Sunrise from the balcony...

The hotel manager advised us against going north as the road wasn't up to much, so we headed south. Good job, as the track heading south was more like a collection of holes surrounded by soft, dusty, loose sand and interspersed with the odd tufts of grass or a few wooden slats attempting to impersonate a bridge. Rusty Chinese bikes made for Chinese sized people with rusty western sized riders on Lao tracks is not a good formula. I gave up and headed back to the poolside long before David did!


The rest of the day was spent on the sunbed, in the cooling pool, bar, restaurant, private balcony and A/C room. Repeat as necessary.
