It was a cold night and this morning I put my jeans and pullover on under my airflow gear, riding up here as I ascended I could feel the cold creeping through all my layers

A beautiful day but a bit too chilly for my liking

Perhaps all those fires are to warm the workers up

This back road will take me to the Khuntan NP road but last time I rode it the last bit was still unpaved

It still is unpaved but no problem on the Wave

Its warm enough for an ice cream, I was expecting to take off the pullover and jeans once the temperature rose but they stayed on all day

Now on the 2047 canal road that will take me back to the 1317

By 15.30 I can feel the temperature dropping again, on tuesday I want to make an early start to Mai Sai and I think the windproof linings will be going inside my airflow clothing to help keep the cold out

Its the perfect time for photos along the canal road
