Mark has dengue fever. The blood test results are conclusive. When I arrived in Savannakhet the doctor was just leaving. Mark will not be doing any cycling for a while. I hope he has a fast recovery.

Tucker – a friend of Mark’s – is currently working in Savannakhet and will be here for Mark. I will take a day off too and rest up, but will then continue on.

Today’s cycling was pretty boring along a road that followed the Mekong through little villages. Straight and flat, it was again time to listen to podcasts and let the mind wander.

    What a pity about Mark. Not what he had planned! I hope the mosquitoes leave you alone!
