Ever since I saw a kid playing the hoop and stick game in Pak Beng, I wanted a picture. So I'm riding down a mountain road, and there are two kids standing at a tight switchback. This one starts running out for a high-five, pushing his tire along with him. My right hand dives for the camera, my left hand goes out for the high five. Somehow it all works and my right manages to get this shot while the rest of me rides by him. Our hands connect, I start to cope with the tight bend in the road, and that's when I see the monster potholes. Yikes. Well, I got the picture anyway.
