Bernadette and I slept in today, and then talked and talked and talked. We only started cycling around 11 (rather than the usual 6). Consequently only a few kilometres were done today through the plantations of various crops.

It was quite a pleasant road, although at the end, it was clearly getting busy – approaching the mega-city of Bangkok.

Lovely view over the plantations

I feel rather silly, but, this crop is being grown everywhere in Laos, Cambodia and now in Thailand. Does anyone know what it is?

What is this plant?

Tomorrow and early rise, and into the Bangkok traffic-jam.

    The plant in your third photo is probably Tapioca. Commonly grown for food in South-East Asia. The roots and leaves are edible.
