10/3/2018. Lumbini Hotel Gautam Buddha $17. 128 miles I rode less than a mile and lost my gloves. I quickly retraced my route but they were gone. The road to Lumbini was mostly paved. Good road with a curve every 50-100 feet. I stopped twice for a drink and a snack. It took 4 hours to get here. The last 30 miles changed drastically. From mountains to boring flat land. It reminded me of Africa. Men herding there buffalo and women carrying baskets on their backs with most of the weight supported by their heads. And it was hot at this elevation. My GPS got me to Lumbini. I don't see a town. A gas station, 2 hotels, and a few other buildings. I'll find things tomorrow.My hotel and looking out the back door.
