The route today was a little longer but mostly on small roads so we started out looking forward to todays cycle.
There was a short stretch on the main road but we quickly turned off this onto side roads. The side roads were very quiet to traffic free and had the usual mix of tarmac, potholed tarmac, concrete, potholed concrete and dirt (with everything).
We passed through rubber plantation after rubber plantation with the occasional palm thrown in for good measure. Everyone smiling and shouting “hello” as we passed. You had to smile all the time when cycling today even when Janet had another puncture (maybe not a very big smile at than moment).
It was 60 km later we cycled up to the “Cupid Hotel” where we were looking to stop tonight, where the prices were at lot less than using one of the booking websites.
The town is along the main road the 416 and a very busy place it is, no tourists at all (no English menus) so we ended up kind of making ourselves understood at a restaurant to get pork and fried rice with a plate of stir fried vegetables. It was very nice.
Then back to the hotel via the market where we restocked on bananas, mangos and sapota fruit this tastes like a kiwi fruit / fig mixture. Wikipedia link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pouteria_sapota.
