Day 1, Jan 2, chiang rai to chiang kong
Arrived from Bangkok by plane in chiang rai around 10. Had been travelling from sf for about 30 hrs incl. layovers.assembled my bike and got on the road by 11.30. Forgot how difficult it is to figure out directions. Hardly any latin writing and asking thais for directions is a crapshoot. Rode through very rural area. Rice, corn, teak. Hot and exhausting from 1 to 4. Got into chiang khong at 5.30.
Km 117 ave 19.3 tm 6.01
