Where I stayed
the room Chris noticed a bag of laundry missing from his pack. On the
bus ride the driver would not let us put our packs in the cargo storage
below the bus, which was fine because last time we did that our bags
were caked with dust. So we threw them in the back of the bus, far
from us and very close to a crowd of locals. Every time we looked
back our packs we sitting in a different place, most of the time
someone was stepping on them. Anyway, it was impossible to keep them
in our sites at all times and we think someone grabbed the plastic bag
from the outside pocket as it was knocked loose from all the movement
We did not think a bag of dirty clothes would be a big target! Chris
was most upset about loosing 2 pairs of shorts, one he wore for
running/hiking and a pair for swimming. Now he only has one pair left,
that he was wearing at the time.
We stopped in this town just to break up the long bus trip. We
splurged for A/C to rest up for the bus the next day. This town is suppose to
have really great villages to stroll around, but it was way too hot for
any of that. We planned on walking across the matchstick constructed
Bamboo Bridge, but we couldn't even manage that.
We did watch a couple of guys playing kick-shuttle-cock which was very entertaining. They had interesting technique!
