Notes from the road river

It appears that WiFi is common this side of the Mekong, so this is a short post to say wassup?!, and tell mum we’re alive and well in Louang Phabang, Laos. We arrived yesterday after a two day boat cruise down the Mekong river from Thailand. Thoughts? How can I relieve the sunburn.

We spend four nights in this small but well prepared village. Imagine the best bits of Bali, without the footy yobbos (and the beach).

Coming up: 60km ride to Kouang Si waterfalls and back, some Lao Ballet, an all-day cooking class, and a 8 hour bus trip to Vientiane.
