The Bridge Is Down – Video Post from Cycling In Laos
As Europe seemingly grinds to a halt after a few inches of snow, here in Laos I am bathed in sunshine. But the weather can turn bad here too and in the rainy season the monsoon is a powerful adversary. Farm land is flooded, homes destroyed and roads are washed away. The power of the rains swells rivers and bridges that once linked communities are often washed away leaving areas isolated for months. Lack of funding often means repairs are never made, as I discovered while cycling in the hills north of Pakse.
