By the way, a really good blog to keep an eye on is the one by my mate Felix and his pal Mr Pumpy. It's at http://www.mrfelix.blogspot.com/. You might also like to check out the Biking Southeast Asia with Mr Pumpy! site. They're in Kolkata at present, and plan to cycle to Burma. It would've been good to hook up with them, but unfortunately our timings don't quite coincide.
