We were planning on riding towards Basti but soon realised that the road was so bad that we'd never make it in daylight.
I would love to type out a full descripotion but this internet place isn't great nor is the guy sat to my left. I'll try and upload some photos and add to this once I've some wifi access.
Suffice to say, it was bad......very bad! We reached one largish town but both hotels were full so we were left with little choice but to ride the further 40+ kms in the dark towards Basti. During the journey I even had a Terrapin run out in front of me - that's a first! Once at Basti we managed to find a reasonable hotel and after 13 hours hard riding we were shattered. We had a beer and food in our room and crashed out for a much needed long sleep. We had done 343 KMS.
At 05.50 we were called on to ask if we'd like a paper!!!!
We left Basti at 10.30 ish and planned to ride the Highway 28 then 29 to Varanassi. Highway 28 was fine but Highway 29???? Terrible!
I have no idea where we are (please take note Geoff) but we are hoping to reach Varanassi tomorrow after yet another hard riding day I'm sure. You could loose a car in the pot holes on this road - I'm not kidding!
I'll upload some photos soon - time to try and go and find a much needed beer and get away from the nosy bloke to my left - yes YOU if you're still reading!
