“Hey, you! Where do you go?”
I heard that innocent, meaningless phrase so many times before, but not until the last day it started to piss me off. It rained almost every truck or other vehicle rickety, who passed me on the way to the top. And on the way from the top, I was not much faster.
Last day in Burma marked the defeat of the mountain road, they've never experienced. I guess I will have to overcome a lot worse, but for now, this wins the pelbiscycie at most a coarse, steep and full of holes.
I had no strength to smiles and greetings and after some time under his nose gushed and grumbled like an old lady. Well because I like where I'm going, as the only road leading to the border of Myawaddy / Mae Sot? I said therefore sometimes, I was going to Hollywood, but no one will expect an answer.
Narrow for some 4 meter road required, every moment to dodge to the side, which was hardly. The endless colonnade vehicles, including huge trucks, stink, heat and stones. Well only, it is open only in one direction, ie. even days to Thailand in odd vice versa – vehicles would not achieve the council to evade the. The transition only opened half a year ago, the road is completely adapted to such movement, possibly some carriages drawn by oxen.. for such there fit.
This tragedy in two acts began the day before, before they began to advance. The road was narrow, it flowed colonnade stuffed on 3 floors of goods vehicles (that day movement took place in August in Thailand so probably smuggled what can be) and I wondered why so often happens, that cars take to be evasive and go straight an me.. then I realized that to a large extent it is a … driver's seat. In Burma, Despite this, the movement is right-handed then all cars have a place for the driver on the right, because most of them are imported used cars from Japan. So the driver can not see what's going on in front of it before it comes out almost the entire car in the overtaking maneuver, and then it is often already too late, August to withdraw. Some drivers are therefore helpers, who extend from the left side of the car and do the mirror :). I wonder just why nowiuśkie cars are also suitable for left-hand traffic..
Well ok, enough of these complaints. Farewell to Burma was on the bridge of friendship Thai-Burmese, in the middle of whose appear warrant, to return to the left side. In this way, I learned, from Thailand, left hand drive. Immediately after the bridge greeted me sign: “Tesco 4 km distance” So I decided, that's Main attraction Mae Sot, and today I went to explore this phenomenon, which hire from 2,5 month I have not seen.
And what will happen next I do not know yet. I need a breather, regenerate, catch up blogowo-Internet and plan which way I want to go.. Gueshouse is clean, nice, cheap and do not exclude electricity here.. August Rush I do not hurry because I have a 2-month visa and interesting places to visit many.
