After Phan tiet

After Phan tiet

After planting tree I left that village and just I cycled ahead to the Phan Thiet. I had almost 100km cycling and certain time to reach there. I started cycling too late due to I was busy with planting, so it was about 10am that I started. Again my body was fighting with my mind. Still I felt fever and the temperature of my body was high, headache and running noise, but the body had to follow my mind and it was working. after 2 hours I met a couple of cyclist from New Zealand, they were about 60 years old !!!! I appreciated their courage and their work.

They gave me plenty of hope.hey Mohammad you can follow your way till this age, don't worry you will see the entire world on your bicycle. By the time rain started and we had a chance to stay somewhere and have a drink together. They were going down and I was in the other way. After rain stop I cycled a head to the east and again after one hour another heavy rain. I found a shelter and just I shoot my bicycle there to get ride from rain. There was some people and again like to talk and no common words. I soaked and it was cold, and it made me more ill, after 2 hours rain I cycled ahead to the city, but I had to cycle more 60km.

Just I was cycling and I tried to get the town before night, I really didnt like to ride in dark in Vietnamese road. It was almost evening and regarding to my map I had reach there but I found that I have to cycle more 20km at night and rain. I had no choice and just I had to get the town and stay in a hotel, my body was going down and every moment I felt worth, rain became heavy and everywhere was completely dark, just I was hopeful that I am getting close to town and I will stay in a room tonight, so I can rest. Finally I got the city by 8pm and just I was looking for a guest house.it was Saturday and weekend, so all the guest houses and hotel were full.

It was very cold and I was loosing my energy and after more than hour I couldnt find any place to stay. Finally I found a hotel and I got a room, having a warm shower could help me to become little bit fresh, just I needed to sleep. Today in the morning I woke up difficulty and I didnt like to get out from bed. I didnt have good situation and I felt really bad. I knew that I have to rest, but again my mind pushed my body to work, I loaded my bicycle again and after few minutes I found myself on the road , turning pedals.

For few days my body tolerated everything and it was a time to collapse, after 2 hours ridding I felt really bad and I staid somewhere in the shadow. There was a cafe and just I lied on a hammock and slept for about 2 hours. After that again I started cycling, but I had no more energy to pedal. I finished. Everything was turning around my head and just after 10km I realized that I can not continue. Fortunately by the same time rain started and it was a good reason to stay somewhere. I found a garage in front of a house and I went there, I began to get close them slowly and after 1 hour I found that rain doesn't like to stop and I can not cycle any more.

So I asked them to stay there and they accepted, I put my tent inside the garage and just I lied and slept like a dead. After 2-3 hours I woke up and they invited me to their house, they found that I dont feel good, so they provided me a soup and something to eat. Thanks them for their hospitality. I was in their house for almost 1 hour and again no more word to talk. Here is a village and it is nice, almost all the family and friends gather in a house till late and then they go to their house and tonight this house was best place to gather for them, here was something fun to laugh, a stranger.

The children's came around me and just say something and laughit is nice, I was a reason for children's to laugh and I could make them happy. After that I came to my tent, and now I am writing my stories, no everywhere is calm and every body went to their house and no more sound of playing children's or laughing people, they are going to sleep and just there is sound of frogs. It was really funny, I was inside the tent writing and every few minutes a new group of people or children's came here to look at me like a circa animal inside the cage. Finally I realized that if I sleep, they won't come again and I continue writing, so I lied and I closed my PC, they went and then again I started to writing till now.

Tonight I could earth some foods and hope tomorrow I feel better and continue.however everything which is going to happen is nice, cycling or pain or ..I will enjoy all.

بعد از پان تایت

بعد از کاشت درخت روستا را ترک کردم و به سمت پان‌تايت راه افتادم، حدود صد کيلومتر را بايد رکاب مي‌زدم و الان ساعت ده صبح بود و اين دير شدن به‌ واسطه مشغوليت کاشت درخت بود. بدنم شروع به جنگ با روحم کرده بود، تب داشتم، دماي بدنم بالا بود و آبريزش بيني هم داشتم، ولي بدنم بايد از روحم تبعيت مي‌کرد، بعد از دوساعت يک زوج دوچرخه‌سوار نيوزيلندي را در مسير ديدم که حدود شصت سال سن داشتند، به کارشان احترام گذاشتم و از عملکردشان انرژي گرفتم که محمد تا اين سن مي‌تواني مسير را ادامه دهي و تمام دنيا را سوار بر دوچرخه‌ات ببيني. باران گرفت و فرصتي پيش آمد که به‌دنبال يک سرپناه، باهم يک نوشيدني بنوشينيم. آنها به سمت پايين مي رفتند و من مسيري ديگر. بعد از قطع شدن باران به سمت شرق راه افتادم و بعد از يک ساعت دوباره باران سنگيني شروع شد. سرپناهي پيدا کردم و پريدم داخل آن. آدم‌هايي که آنجا بودند طبق معمول مايل به صحبت بودند و متاسفانه نمي‌توانستيم زبان يكديگر را متوجه شويم، خيس بودم و مي‌لرزيدم و اين حال مرا بدتر مي‌کرد. بعد از دوساعت که باران بند آمد مسير را به سمت شهر ادامه دادم، شصت کيلومتري بايد رکاب مي‌زدم، خسته بودم و قبل از تاريکي بايد به شهر مي‌رسيدم. اصلا نمي‌خواستم در تاريکي در جاده‌هاي ويتنام باشم. عصر بود و من متوجه شدم که هنوز بيست کيلومتري راه دارم که بايد در شب و تاريکي طي کنم. چاره‌اي نبود و بايد به هتلي مي‌رسيدم. بدنم داشت افت مي کرد و هر لحظه حالم بدتر مي‌شد. باران سنگين‌تر شده بود و همه جا تاريک بود، تنها اميدم اين بود که دارم به شهر نزديک‌تر مي‌شوم و مي‌رفتم اتاقي مي‌گرفتم و استراحت مي‌کردم. بالاخره ساعت هشت رسيدم به شهر و شروع به جستجو براي مهمان‌خانه‌اي کردم. شنبه بود و تعطيلات و همه مهمانخانه‌ها و هتل‌ها پر بود. خيلي سرد بود و همه انرژي من از دست رفته بود. بعد از يک ساعت جستجو اتاقي در يک هتل پيدا کردم. يک دوش آب‌گرم تا اندازه‌اي مي‌توانست حال مرا بهتر کند و بعد از آن فقط خواب. امروز صبح به سختي بيدار شدم، نمي‌خواستم از رختخواب بيايم بيرون. شرايط خوبي نداشتم و واقعا حالم خوب نبود. مي‌دانستم که بايد استراحت کنم ولي روحم دوباره بدنم را مجبور به فعاليت مي‌کرد. دوچرخه‌ام را برداشتم و بهد از چند دقيقه خودم را در جاده ديدم. پدال‌زدن اين چند روز اخير، بدنم همه چيز را تحمل کرده بود و ديگه داشت مي‌افتاد، بعد از دو ساعت آنچنان حالم بد شده بود که در سرپناهي براي استراحت ايستادم. کافه‌اي بود و من براي دوساعت روي يک تختخواب ننويي خوابيدم. بعدش دوباره شروع به پدال‌زدن کردم اما واقعا انرژي نداشتم. همه چيز دور سرم مي‌چرخيد و بعد از ده کيلومتر متوجه شدم که نمي‌توانم ادامه دهم. خوشبحتانه همان موقع باران شروع شد و بهانه‌اي بود براي جايي ماندن. گاراژي را روبه‌روي خانه‌اي ديدم. به آرامي به آن سمت رفتم، گويا باران قصد بندآمدن نداشت. از صاحبخانه اجازه خواستم که آنجا بمانم و آنها هم قبول کردند. چادر را برپا کردم و هنوز دراز نشده بودم که به‌مانند مرده‌اي به‌خواب رفتم. بعد از دوساعتي بيدار شدم و آنها مرا به منزلشان دعوت کردند. متوجه شده بودند که حالم خوب نيست و برايم سوپ پخته بودند و چيزهاي ديگر براي خوردن. از مهمان نوازيشان تشکر کردم. يک ساعتي که در خانه‌شان بودم کلمه‌اي نمي‌توانستيم با هم صحبت کنيم. اينجا روستاست و کل فاميل و آشنايان تا دير وقت کنار هم هستند و امشب اين مکان بهترين جا براي حمع شدن دور هم بود، چيزي براي خنديدن وجود داشت، يک خارجي. بچه‌ها مي‌آمدند دورم و چيزي مي‌گفتند و همه شروع به خنده مي‌کردند. خوشحالم، من دليلي براي شادماني بچه‌ها بودم. بعدش آمدم داخل چادرم و دارم جريانات اين مدت را مي‌نويسم، همه جا آرام است ، همه رفته‌اند به خانه‌هاي خودشان، نه صداي بازي بچه‌ها و نه صداي خنده مردم. همه رفته‌اند بخوابند و تنها صداي قورباغه‌هاست. خيلي خنده‌دار بود، داشتم داخل چادر مي‌نوشتم و هر از چندگاهي گروهي از بچه‌ها و مردم براي ديدنم مي‌امدند سرک مي‌کشيدند، مثل تماشاي حيوان سيرکي در قفس. بالاخره ديدم اگر بخوابم ديگر آنها نخواهند آمد. دراز کشيدم و لب‌تاپ را بستم. آنها رفتند و بعد از آن دوباره شروع کردم به نوشتن تا الان. امشب توانستم چيزهايي بخورم و اميدوارم فردا حالم بهتر باشد و بتوانم ادامه دهم. هر چه پيش آيد نيکوست. راندن با دوچرخه يا مريضي، من از هر چيزي لذت مي برم.

After nearly 3 months I am on my back to Iran. last 2 years I didnt travel much because I should spend more time in Iran working on the Association to develop it. this year also I will spend few months in Iran in order to do more work for the Association. Of course is not that easy for me to stay in Iran long time but I have an important job to do though. 
I think I am almost done with Europe and my next leg of journey will be South America in 2018.
