Kampong Thom Province is "out there", and most things are pretty run down, but not so the locals, so it seems!

Note the road. Paved, but in bad condition. A few kilometres further on and the road falls apart completely. The other bike in the photo belongs to Juan-Antonio, from Madrid, who cycled this leg with Mr Pumpy.

This was Mr Pumpy's favourite stretch of road. It was tough going in places, but exhilarating.
