Woke up too early on e motor scooter and headed to the market. Quite an experience. Purchased souvenirs. Met more Canadians and Americans with a Guelph connection. Went back to the bike to find it broken.....oops. Paul thought we were going to owe thousands. Someone must have knocked it over and stood it back up. Brake was broken and bike was scuffed up. Back to rental place to explain and pull out the visa.....only to be told that the cost was $ bike and on our way to see another thousand Pagodas.

We went one way and ended up on a road or should I say a mud patch that went on for what seemed like forever mixed with cow poop for sure....lots of laughing

Saw some gorgeous views from on top of the Pagodas that yes we climbed....and yes I am still deathly afraid of heights. Paul helped.

Saw the long necked lady weaving scarves on her loom...pretty freaky with gold ring extender to make her neck longer. They think it is beautiful.

Saw so much poverty it really is disturbing and about 200 plus stray dogs everywhere again today

Went to lacquer ware shops...saw how it was made...treated us like royalty.

Back to hotel to relax by pool. Paul went for a run but it was more like dodge the wild dogs and not get bite.

out for dinner in town to Bibo....awesome restaurant that Paul found. Shopped for handmade umbrella and back to hotel to crash.....humidity was about 200 percent both days.....not good hair days
