We're in Sukhothai, the old Thai capital (another one). Lots to see here so we will stay a couple of days. This will also give the legs a chance to recover before the hills start.
It's still hot - someone said that athletes adjust better to the heat but I am pretty certain this is a lie. Or perhaps we are just not athletic enough - guess we will have to do some more biking.
It was 133km to Kamphaeng Phet where we spent a day looking around some more ruins/temples. Had the place to ourselves which was great. Today we came 85km north through the best scenery we have had so far, and on the quietest roads. Only 100 scooters a minute that means, and only 2 disemboweled dogs. Road kill has been our most rewarding view of Thai wildlife thus far. There has been an assortment of snakes, frogs, lizards, dogs, and birds. Much easier to look at than the swift moving live variety.
Getting a sore arm from waving at all the locals that call out "HELLO". We attract our fair share of attention. Not too many close calls with dogs yet, only a couple of half hearted chasers. Most are too hot or malnourished to care.
There is a pool at the guesthouse where we are staying so that is where we will be if you need anything.
