My new friend Bill, who is Canadian, and I went on another scooter ride today. These are the photos and some commentary. Many fatalities occur on scooters every year in this country. The driving in general…Sucks! If you come here and rent a bike, be very careful.

This is on the road to the Buddha Cave.
