Hi
Welcome to Dhammawheel, where abouts did you cycle, in the two countries?
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
John Stuart Mill

Since the airport in Bangkok was shutdown when my flight was scheduled to arrive, I had the good fortune to be re-routed to Chiang Mai.

From Chiang Mai I headed north through Chiang Dao, Thaton, to Mae Sai, then south to Chiang Khong. From there I took the boat to Pak Beng, Laos then rode north through Muang Beng then to Udomxai. From there it was on to Luang Prabang, Kasi, Vientienne. After crossing the Friendship bridge I rode back up the Thai side of the Mekong to Loei, then on through Dan Sai, Nakon Thai, Uttaradit, Phrae, Lampang and finally back to Chiang Mai.

Great trip, beautiful people. The only real challenges were riding through the hungry dogs, early in the morning, and avoid the tour buses going MACH II.

Thanks again for the welcome
