We expect Route 13 to be back to back with buses and trucks and other equally dangerous traffic, overtaking on blind corners and generally being a hazard to anyone on a bike. In reality it is practically deserted for the most part and we breeze along it without much hassle at all. Its 2 and a half hours straight down to Thakhek. We stop only a few times for fags,bum massaging, water and a noodle soup lunch.
As a result we are back at the Travel Lodge at an exceedingly early 1pm
Once back at the Travel Lodge we have a congratulatory beer over dinner to celebrate not dying on the roadS of Central Laos. Whilst doing so we spot a Swiss lady we met (very) briefly in Nong Khiaw and end up chatting to her for the entire evening. She is Judith and we think she's pretty bloody great (we manage quickly to get beyond the, now a little tiring traveler chat of where you going/ where you been, and it is very refreshing) so we exchange details and say that maybe we'll meet again in Pakse in a few days time.
WE RODE MOTORBIKES FOR 4 DAYS AND IT WAS IMMENSE.
