I just retrieved the bike from the luggage compartment on the train. It was no problem taking the bike on the train. In Nong Khai we had to arrive about an hour early to weigh the bike, pay 80 baht to get a special luggage ticket for it, and take it down to the luggage wagon. It was quite easy and casual. The bike was stored upright against a wall. There was no damage. I'm still slightly chilled from the night, but before we started pedalling I stripped down to shorts and a t-shirt.

Vientiane to Bangkok - Links for: Thailand Nov, Dec 2006 main doc Previous set of Thailand photos My short dispatch about the end of the trip is written from Boulder two weeks after our return. Hopefully I'll still be able to capture a bit of Thailand magic even as it fades from my daily experience. Vientiane, Laos: not an early-rising city. The morning market hadn't opened when we arrived at 7 so we walked to Laos' national symbol, the golden stupa of That Louang. We waited for that to open and ... well, the view from the outside is all you need. After barely 30 hours in Laos I'm hardly qualified to comment on the country even from a tourist's perspective, but I will say that Thailand was a great choice for our entire one month cycle adventure. The return ride to Nong Khai was quick and uneventful. The trip to Bangkok on Thai Railways was comfortable and on schedule. Two days in Bangkok with Oliver was a culinary treat retracing our route. We had fantastic curries from Central Thailand and perhaps the best meal of the entire trip, lunch at Yum & Tum, an Isaan-inspired restaurant with Bangkok flair. Christmas morning we packed our bicycle so we were able to enjoy the rest of the day without worrying about our upcoming departure. We found a traditional US (or British, I guess) style Christmas lunch at a British pub near Oliver's apartment. Then we spent the afternoon wandering Lumphini Park watching giant lizards and Thais exercising. For dinner Oliver treated us to a wonderful Thai meal on a boat cruising the Chao Phraya. What a great way to end our culinary journey in this welcoming country.
An actual reflection in the water, rotated upright-- just so that you can sort of see what is reflected in the water . A neighbor's boat, and the mangroves and palm trees, are actually reflected in relatively calm water. The mangrove roots are the actual roots, not reflected. 2/15/09 #1258
