Crossing the Mekong was a real milestone and felt very special. It was the third majestic river with its source in China. We passed small villages and spent a day in Jinghong on our way to Mengla and the border.
We had left the first few hundred kilometres of China behind us and reached the flat plains of Henan. The road was easy, but filled with traffic and not so interesting. Luckily we had some nice encounters which made our days and we crossed the Yellow river.
