So, that night i make it to Murad, with some directions from a nice young couple. They were really cool. They let me share a rickshaw with them for 4 km. I, then, ride onto Murad, by the beach. Very basic hotels, but i found one with a room with a/c. I needed to cool down. The hotel manager seemed to be a nice guy. He had been managing the hotel for 9 years. He had been living in the area for 20 years. He immediately gave me a large,cold bottle of water. So refreshing. Nice guy. We negotiated a rate for the a/c room, then i went up to take a rest. He had my bike carried up to the room with me. I didn’t even have to ask. Things were looking good. I put a Nuun electrolyte tablet in my water. About an hour later it must have kicked in because i started to feel human again. So, i started to do what any normal Kris would do. No, not that, get your mind out of the gutter!!! Look for ants. I hate ants, and i cant stand being anywhere near them. Shitty, creepy things. Recon went well, No ants. Bonus.
I went downstairs to ask the manager where i could get some food. He suggested that i don’t eat any of the food from anywhere around there. He was sure i would get sick. I appreciated his honesty. I went for a walk at the beach, and saw an amazing sunset. Not a bad way to end a tough day.
Where i had stopped for a coke on day 1. It got difficult finding stuff after this.
