First Day: Teknaf to Innani….sweat and tears

Bismillah.

Sorry for the delay guys; was really worn out last night, after the first days ride. The first day has been interesting, fun and at times tough, alhamdulillah. Most people didn’t realize how much harder it would be, but the excitement and the team spirit really helped everyone , – – pull through. But one thing I do gotta say, RESPECT for all the rickshaw pullers out there, who do this day-in and day-out, for a living.

Kick-off from Teknaf:

But the fun and excitement didn’t come easy. The first day saw a fair amount of rickshaws with mechanical problems, frustrations and some minor bruises and scratches:
