And then we saw it..
The dreaded "concrete road ends here" sign.... Oh no..
We were finally reunited with bitumen long enough to get breakfast and for Gypsy to be passed around what seemed like the entire village.
What the roads were lacking in comfort though, they made up in wildlife! Being such a terrible road we didn't see too much other traffic apart from a couple of buses and trucks and the inevitable Army checkpoints, but we did see more variety of birdlife than I have ever seen before! Ibis, Peacock, Eagles, Herron, Kingfisher, Crows... To name the ones we recognised! It's just beautiful countryside!
