|... and finally: The hotel pool! Our boys where so relieved that it had water (not like the last ones, all under maintenance).|
This first day hadn't been easy; although the distance wasn't that long: Getting used to heat, traffic, exhaust fumes and dust, agreeing on how to navigate, and where and when to stop ... and being at the arrival hotel by 6:30 pm at the latest (because driving a rickshaw in the dark is not recommended for apprentices like us) where challenges in itself already. After this first day, I was rather sure that we wouldn't make it (the next stages where way longer) and that it would be more stress than fun.
