Today was an easy ride from Monywa to Old Bengan, only a distance of 244km.
The weather was fine and we made our way with ease, riding out front of the tour guides who had hired another vehicle while the original car was being repaired. Road conditions were improving as we headed south as we were leaking the flood damaged area behind.
Arriving at Old Began we had time to take Steve’s bike to a metal working workshop for additional repairs to the top box mounting as it had failed agin on the rough roads yesterday.
Mutu from Myanmar Expert Tours directed Steve to a great little workshop, with the young guy who knew exactly what to do in order to repair the bracket (hopefully for the last time). We ended up leaving due to failing light and agreed to return tomorrow to collect the finished bracket.
The evening finished with a relaxing meal and beer with our tour guides who were proving to be a great bunch, working ever so hard to attend to our needs.
