The road is a dual carriageway and the cycling is to get the kilometres done. Today I passed 33,333km and we got within 100km of Makassar. The excitement mounted when we discovered a boat going to Surabaya leaving tomorrow evening. My Borneo and Sulawesi detour is coming to an end. It has been amazing.

Flat road. No music – I had the music of horns and traffic. The cars tried to copy China with their honking (China is much worse, though). The solution – music. Set intermediate goals about 30km apart and then go. Ice stops, food stops, flake out in the midday heat stops, and now we find ourselves on the beach camping out in 2 little gazebos. Sitting in the still water we watched the sun set to a backdrop of amazing clouds. The birds flew in perfect formation ahead. The silence was emcompassing. The beauty was engrossing. And then we had a laugh, making more and more stupid photo ideas for the ‘Bold’ cigarette advertisements. More to follow.

And here we were, wondering if Clement would make it to Makassar – if he could catch us up – the lightening bolts along the coast. After hurtling along to pass 80km before lunch, I switched on my internet. Clement was already here, perusing the ice-cream concoctions. The three are back together.

Today was cycle and eat, wait for the torrential downpour, and swap stories. When the three rejoin after a while apart, it’s time for story telling, and I am happy.
