Meeting Virgilio

When I arrived to the village, I didnt think that I can find any access to the internet there, but fortunately I could find and I went there to check my emails there was not interesting news, I got an email from an agency in Uzbekistan that was following my request for applying LOI for Chinese visa and they told me that they cant do it and the tourist ministry of China doesn't do it for a single Iranian traveler. For few minutes it made me a little bit upset, but just it was for few minutes and after that I remembered that I am following the river and may it going to cross from some other places, so dont push your self Mohammad to get something that is not belong to you, just be patient and follow the river, if it like to bring you to China, nothing can stop you and if not, you can do nothing, so keep enjoying and freshness. Just I came out of net cafe, looking for a place to fill my hungry stomach, it was hard to find a food that I like and finally after 30 min searching I found a place that they served chicken, I asked them some chicken and rice. Ok let you explain is it was the food. At first I should mention that they dont hit the food and they serve it cold, the rice is completely tasteless and meet as well. I start eating that food, just due to I need to put something in my stomach, and after few minutes I saw some bogs inside the meet, I asked them about that and just they took the meet and marinated it in hot water( it means that they killed the bogs)and brought it back to me, there was no way else, I start again eating them and there was no joy of food. However after that I went to the room and after writing last article I slept.

As I wrote before I was not in rush and I could move relax and take time and enjoy. Already I forgot what was happened for Chinese visa and I was thinking about some other destination and just waiting what is going to happen. In the morning I started cycling on the road and looking people who were working , some trying to hunt very small fishes and some selling mushroom side the road and they all are women and must of men were playing card or playing with some big steal balls ¦in these countries women are working more than men and it is hard to see one woman doesnt work. Several times I saw some ladies fishing and I stopped several times to take pictures and laugh with them. they are so kind and happy, I love it.

I spent almost all the day like that and just I cycled 95 km in that day to Paksan. I didnt want to stay there and just I decided to buy some supplies and go out from the town and stay in my tent. I was looking for market that I met another cyclist who was going down in the opposite direction. He was Spanish and after a short conversation I thought that it is nice to stay there with him. I had some one to talk and share the time, and after that we went to find a gust house to stay over night.

It is nice to explain how he was traveling. He is Spanish living in Australia and just he has few months holidays, he came to Bangkok and bought a bicycle and he put his back bag on the bicycle and started cycling from Bangkok, up to the north and then Lao and go down in Lao and from the south he is going to go back Bangkok, sell the bicycle and fly back home, so easy. He didnt has any special equipments and he was not a cyclist, it is true that he do sport a lot and he is in a good shape, but it means that every body can do it, so easy. Just you need a bicycle, a map and a little bit courage.

Hey my friends dont think of my problem for Chinese visa, I am not worry at all and just I am waiting to see what will happen, I wont move at all, the river will push me get out from this matter. I am happy enjoying visiting beauty of GOD creations, hahahahaha
