Sahara, is that you? For moments cycling through the undeveloped terrains of Laos, I kept thinking if I was in someplace else. It’s so bare that sometimes you forget where you are. I can’t even recall where I was, at this exact moment – only that I had to ride mindlessly until I found the next township.

But this “sand” you see on the ground is actually dust – light, powdery dust. It didn’t help when cars and motorcycles were whooshing by, causing more dust to fly all over. I had to stop here and wait till itĀ settled before I could ride again. Well, not just that. How was I supposed to ride when I could barely breathe O.O
