Those are the nice roads we had on our way when we left Amed and the coast.
Some fog, gentle hills, small villages…Capture d’écran 2013-12-08 à 13.05.10

… But small villages come together with humans, farmers, and their feedstock: chicken!
And when chicken get on your way, it can end badly. That what happened to Michelle on Saturday, a chicken running into her wheel. She braked, too much, and felt on the floor. No major injury, don’t worry.
The funny part is that, of course, villages ran to help her (I was far behind taking pictures with my GoPro), and immediately started to massage her knees and shoulders to make sure she wouldn’t have muscle pain afterwards. Amazing.
Here the video I’ve shot just after the event, when we were leaving the village, just to give you an impression of the atmosphere of those small rural villages.

We arrived safe to the mountain’ top, ready to explore the island volcano the following morning. But then, when we had to leave the volcano area, on our way to a lakes’ region, we had to face a very violent rain… We stopped wherever we could, here was the scene:

Finally decided we would skip the lake, and went back directly to the coast, less hit by tropical rains…. And this was wise, as the view from our coastal hotel shows.
