‘Have you got some of that Viagra?’ Clement asked.
I looked at him in disbelief.
‘You know, that Viagra you used the other day.’
‘That jelly to help with my shorts rubbing.’
‘Aaaah. Vaseline.’
Viagra is not part of my assortment of medications on this trip. ☺

The Indian Ocean

The Indian Ocean

Again, we were fed like kings this morning by our lovely hosts – all ready for the kilometre eating planned for today. Today saw us cycle along the coast, and through the palm plantations in a hilly, undulating landscape. We ended up sleeping in the police station.

    One adventure right after another. 😉 I expect a police station would be a safe place to sleep!

    hi there – enjoying following your blog – in 2014 I went north on same route you are on now & loved it.
    From memory the road between Manna & Krui was particularly up & down, with some really steep sections, especially south of Bintuhan.
    Krui – Ngaras (where you leave the coast) is pretty flat, but then up & over the big hill to Banding is mostly through jungle (Seletan National Park) with big climbs (and fast down other side). After Kotaagung another big hill over to Tanjungkemala, and gradually downhill all the way to Bandar Lampung
    Enjoy 🙂
