Let the saints 1 May

Tags: , , ,

1 May is a celebration of the working people międzynarododowym towns and villages therefore came to the conclusion, it is the best opportunity to take a free bike, although for some time I am a representative of the people of a not-, moreover cities. Besides, I was curious and imaginative eyes have seen those reaching the streets of cities flagged and Human otransparentowane parades.
Nothing could be further from the truth. There was no sign of the procession or other manifestations, 1 May is now in China's big day purchases and sales, the streets were indeed, full, but wandering with nets citizens. I felt a little disappointed, however,. It would be nice to go back to the days of early memories of childhood, when the First of May parades were for me, residents of the small town small big attraction. Well, HTML naiwna. Therefore, I joined the ranks of shopaholics, because if you do not buy anything in a bigger city is on the road - forget.
Several days earlier, on one of the – mountain course – roads I encountered a Serb family, ie. Ivan, Oliver and their 3,5 year-old son of David. On the bike course - that is to say the boy was riding in the trailer, which, like bicycles laden parents were stacked. Top bambetli the back and front of the bike, tacked a lot of utensils, bottles, food - in front of the steering wheel proudly presented the overgrown turnips or would be otherwise was a vegetable. Some prominent Russian checkered bag, clothes, reflective vests - one word fully deserved to be called a race walkers and takowymi were driving with her son.. the STYLE of Serbii.
As someone tell me, I'm brave, it will point out just such a family, I can not imagine so distant cycling trip with a small child, no world championship just. They rode as I am from Laos.
„.. and why were 3 dni w Jinghong? – asked Oliver. „A, because there is supposedly a nice garden "? replied after a moment.
„W Jinghong? Nieee, virtually nothing was visiting. I've hung around the city, yes, because it is very cool. But I need time to stop and relax, no break in the morning, laze – read, browse the internet, do different things and stuff "- I answered truthfully. "And once I went this way, I peeled really I did not like, So I decided to come back, sleep because it was late and the next day to go another. I descended to the "I added.
„.. I also would've wanted, but ... we have to go "said Oliver with a palpable sadness in his voice, glancing furtively at Ivan.
"It do not stop anywhere on the way, just go day by day?"I asked surprised.
"Well that's what" was the reply.
„No a ty, why you ride alone?"- This time Ivan asked me a question.
I thought then I, that's why, not to be in the voice of sorrow and grief can and heart as his partner. After all, what does it mean "we have to go"? Is it not we who impose themselves or such other coercion? I also draw some wearing different plans, can not do it otherwise. But I know, they are my own and although sometimes I'm sad that I ride mostly because I'm so alone most convenient.
In Laos, I met a couple of Australians followers from Australia to London. We exchanged experiences as it usually happens in such moments. I left Thailand - except I was too hot weather and no steep climbs very happy to stay in this country, while they did not have very positive memories.
"People were not too friendly, even greeted us "I heard. "No, but we were going to highways because you're in a hurry. Thailand from south to north we have done in 16 days, did not see anything but the highway, maybe that's why "they added.
Hmmm.. probably why. I realize, that hardly anyone has an unlimited resource of time to leisurely ride or would be savoring every encountered flower and butterfly, but I'm thinking, it may be worth the time to let go, indulge, First of May holiday to do and then even take the train or bus if time is short and our road business plan collapses.
Do not know, I myself think so, but who likes what.
