Day 4...after another memorable breakfast...it is time to do a bit of bicycle touring, with Ray as the nominated tour guide.
Khun Piya has spent a hour on Google Maps, and worked out a route that he feels will be interesting and a good workout for us...of course, I totally ignore his input.
So we travel about 25 kilometres, on roads and tracks, more or less following the Mun river. Cycling is good, as you travel quite quickly but feeling in touch with your surroundings through the sights, sounds and smells that are all muted or hidden when you are in the protective capsule of a car.
Eventually we return to Khong Chiam, where we find ample rehydration points [coffee, then beer], before settling down to a long and languid lunch near the Mekong.
