Late last night I found this little fella in the guesthouse where I stay, am I right in assuming its a baby Banded Krait?

If so its not the most welcome of guests there, fortunately it was not killed and was released outside to slither away

Unfortunately this is the last photo from todays trip as I forgot the charge the cameras battery and it died on me.
I ride through to the 5032 turn left and ride until the asphalt finishes at N18.56.004 E098.28.130 then turn around and ride to Samoeng.
The road is good in places but lots of potholes in others, at Samoeng I take the 1269 then the 121N to CNX
