some pictures along the road to Bolivia






the roads in Bolivia are tough. similar to cambodia if u know hows the condition like. highway are gravels. its ok to have gravels but there are bumpy courses. there are strips across my wheels every 10cm. these strips are like caused by a 100 tonne tractor wheels. then there are piles of soft sand, along the track so we cannot change `lane`as we like else Hope Too`s front wheel will slide into the sand. again, gravels are ok but we are covering this big country very slowly due to the road condition, some more the govenment set up toll booth to collect $. generally we like this country. the people looked like me, asian. the food for me is just ok. standard of living not so expensive. a dorm bed per person is S$12.00 and bike can park at a garage next door. at night the lowest can go to 1deg celcies and on the day, its about 30deg celcies highest.
will let u see the beautiful salt lake of south america tomorrow, if nothing goes wrong. will be a 8hrs ride on sandy road.
