During my last days in Krabi I had a kind of a guardian angel – so many „almost“-accidents in 1 bike session is hard to believe… and not because of the crazy traffic here.
My 1st angel appeared while climbing up a hill on my bike and I had to cycle really close to the grass line because a moped was passing me. Exact in this moment I realized the head of a big green snake right next to my leg – oh my heart was jumping! I looked into her eyes. Back home I had a look and it was a poisoned bamboos otter! I was really sad when I passed the same road again: she was killed by a car:-(
The 2nd situation was dangerous in another kind: here in Krabi are lots of dogs on the street and I don’t think about them and don’t estimate them. But there was a little kamikaze dog: while I was passing him with maybe 35km/hour he was jumping like a kamikaze flyer into my front wheel and was catapulted back. We both survived without any harm.
The 3rd danger was a car passing me – I already felt the draft of it! When it passed me I saw on his bed a brush cutter poked out on the left site – exactly head height. I’m pretty sure the driver forgot that he had it on his bed!!!
That’s enough flurry for 1 day – thanks to my Guardian Angel;-)
Next time you’ll hear from me is from South Africa. I’m sad that my time is almost over here in the boot camp:-( But see everybody in Leysin in a couple of weeks…
