Goodbye Laos, goodbye slow.

The Hmong Night Market in Luang Prabang, Laos…stuff dreams are made of.

 

The internet remains frightfully slow, so we may not be able to update at full capacity until we reach Thailand. As for Luang Prabang…everyone needs to experience this city. It’s not where you blow through sites like other places…it’s just a wonderful place to be.

Today Annah and I volunteered teaching and conversing in English with a couple of university students around our age. That was really a fantastic experience; we got to learn more about the Laos lifestyle and the differences and similarities between us. Afterwards, we took an hour ride via a jumbo tuk-tuk up to see a 60m high waterfall, where we took a dip in the pond for some great swimming. Caitlin and I swung like Tarzan off a tree; I unfortunately swung too hard, swung back and knocked into the tree, twice, before falling in.

Then we just…chilled…until we saw the sunset off the tallest hill in central Luang Prabang.

I see Laos as a necessary rest stop in between the mayhem of Cambodia and what we perceive to be mayhem in Thailand. See you there.

 

Luang Prabang:

Me with a few new friends…these are the students to whom Annah and I were teaching English for a morning in Luang Prabang

Stuck.

Think I swung into the tree a few times.

I’ll put up a country review of Laos once I upload all the pictures necessary for it. That probably won’t be until we reach Bangkok.
