    It was drizzling with rain all the way up from Luang Prabang to Nong Khiew & I was wondering how much snot there would be on the Pak Mong - Nam Bak - Nong Khiew road when I reached Pak Mong.

    Route 1C is the road number & I'd heard earlier on this year that it was a bit of a mess, being dug up for road works.

    So they haven't quite done it all.

    Crest the hill & away you go.....the nice new stuff

    Then back on some old road

    which is ok, just narrow

    No snot = arrival time in Nong Khiew was 2.30PM & time to kick back in the wet.
