Meghalaya, Shillong, India

We have 200 km to go today and it's supposed to take 8 hours.  That should explain the roads and traffic we're dealing with!

Stalls along the way - garlic and onions-


Meat-  I love the refrigeration!


Working with bamboo-


Bamboo collection point-


Rickshaws are everywhere-


Fishing-


Notice the suspended net-


Here is what we travelled through.  Sometimes we drive in the right lanes, sometimes in the left.


Instead of working on a few miles at a time, it seems that all of India is under construction-


The switch-backy road was through mountains where it looked like there had been landslides-


To complicate matters, it was raining-



Shillong, the former capital of Assam from 1874, is now, since 1972, in the state of Meghalaya (The Abode of the Clouds).  We arrived in the dark - 5:30 so it was difficult to find a hotel.  An hour later, we moved into a hostel type place.  It was fine.

We're working our way to Myanmar, hoping to cross October 15th, as the FIRST OVERLAND TRUCK EVER through this particular border!
