Mud Looming

Having checked that the repair was holding, the next morning I filled the fuel tank - yet again it's dispensed in old plastic bottles kept in a back room. This shop is actually attached to the hotel I stayed in, so I didn't have to go far

There as a choice of routes out of town, this one appeared to be little more than a sandy path through the trees

So I went the other way...oh dear is all I can say.
It started well enough

And there was even some wildlife action, as I almost ran over this snake, which was so engrossed in swallowing a frog that it ignored me

The track was pretty muddy and wet at times
