4x4, Raft and a Moto!

So as Nicky said in her blog, we visited 2 schools yesterday(I only saw the inside of one of the two schools, but I'll come back to that!), which were on the North side of the River.

This meant, we took the trusty 4x4 to Vensai with two moto's (Motorbikes) tied to the back. We loaded the bikes onto the Rafts and crossed the river. We were then met by the Village Chief of Rock (I've nickedname him Speedy Gonzales!), as he was my chauffeur.

He knows the mudtracks and routes through the village like the back of his hand, so there were a few times I had to close my eyes (like when we crossed a bridge where the planks were lose or missing!)

Speedy decided not to stop at Kong Nork, so we whizzed past, straight onto Rock (he's a little bit biased as that's the school in his village!) A fantastic school, drawing in nearly 200 students each day.

We then cooled down in the Namgham waterfall on the River Ol Lai before heading back - my chauffuer on the way back was full of pride at having a foreigner on the back!

Finally, when we got back across the river, we saw a a very innovative way of hammering in a post (to be used for the rafts, so they can tie up their vehicles).

They used the digger to hammer in the post, but as it wasn't effective, they then added more weight by putting some large cans of Resin on the front and tried again - Innovation at its best!

Courtesy of Chris, there's also a picture of Nicky having a snooze on the way back! (Surprise Nicky!)
