India

Today was Day 2 from HELL. We managed 20 km/h and it seemed like there were more police checks than in China, if you can believe that!  The only saving grace is that the scenery is beautiful!


More toilet stops-


In the restaurant for lunch, when I asked for a toilet, the woman asked if it was for number one or two. I said one, so she led me to the back of her house/restaurant, to pee on some boards, where they also take showers-

Funny Indian road signs-




More great scenery.  I swear that has to be a golf couse, but no one here believes me! LOL!


There were no hotels available in Imphal - Black Day tomorrow so there were police everywhere waiting for .... who knows what.  There have been a few bombs detonated in the last month.  We had to sleep in the truck by a petrol station because we're also out of diesel-


Tomorrow we cross into Myanmar!
