We're on our way to Silchar but it is sooooo painfully slow. We're able to go about 20 km/hour, if we're lucky!
This is India-
There are a lot of Christian churches, Buddhist and Hindu temples and Muslim mosques-
We went through an area with lots of coal. We couldn't see the mine but they load the trucks by hand-
Bangladesh is in the distance-
Today was the worst driving day yet. We managed about 20 km/h through rough, busy road, then in Silchar, there were no hotels available so Will drove until 11 pm when he pulled into a gravelly, excavated area. Only a few of us put up our tents, the rest planned to sleep on the truck, but the police arrived and told us the area was unsafe - there were looters. We were forced to pack up, drive another 7 km to the police station and stay there. I slept in my tent and had a great 4 and a half hours in spite of the loud music that seemed to play forever! We're leaving at 5 in the morning with the hope of making Imphal tomorrow!
