Wednesday 1st February 2012 – Nakhon Ratchasima to Saraburi

Nakhon Ratchasima to Saraburi. 93 miles

I was talking to another Brit last night in the hotel bar, he was from Bournemouth and was over here visiting his Thai wife’s family! I don’t know why people like him are over here, he did nothing but run the Thai people down and was complaining that he couldn’t find an English bar! He was explaining to me however that karaoke bars are a bit like brothels especially in Bangkok (apt name!) and made a point about the two girls who were singing in the hotel and sure enough they both copped off with some random blokes. I must admit that I probably wouldn’t have given it a second thought had he not said anything, but it was very obvious that they where prostitutes after he said, so I was grateful that he came and spoke to me in the end or they could have targeted me! Best be on my guard tonight when I go out!

Very hot ride today, the sun is getting pretty intense now I’m getting nearer the equator it’s nearly right above me and I met my first hills since arriving in Thailand, compared to China and Laos though, they were mere bumps in the road!
